AND NOW...THE FIRST CHAPTER:
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY: Cute story...I read this one outloud to the kiddos and we all loved it. We will be waiting for the next one to see where it takes the kids!! As far as 'hotter than potter' I am not sure I agree with this. For some reason, I feel this book is for a younger age group than the harry books were geared toward. I think that Samantha and RIley each could have and would have read this on their own. I do not think they could do that with harry books!
