I just finished reading this book. I thought it was a charming story, and the plot is classic. However, I don't think it's Newbery material. It doesn't quite have the complexity and depth that Newbery-winning books achieve.

I thought this one was kind of boring and not much to it. It wasn't distinguished nor did the plot give pause. Not much to it and that cover is creepy!
