    I haven t read a chapter book since my first Katie Kazoo read, and let me tell you this book was just as good in its own way The voice s were light and pretty distinctive The story had a beat to it which in my opinion is good if you want readers of that age to keep reading and not give up on your story.The antagonist was so perfectly typical not in a bad way that I found myself chuckling when I was reading some of the situations the Wicket got into This is definitely the type of characte I haven t read a chapter book since my first Katie Kazoo read, and let me tell you this book was just as good in its own way The voice s were light and pretty distinctive The story had a beat to it which in my opinion is good if you want readers of that age to keep reading and not give up on your story.The antagonist was so perfectly typical not in a bad way that I found myself chuckling when I was reading some of the situations the Wicket got into This is definitely the type of character I would get all exited about if I ve read the book when I was a kid.I was impressed as to how the author was able to make all the sisters voice their opinions on a matter, by taking meaningful turns and not making the dialogue heavy Now you might come across the occasional said Annie, said Georgia, said Jackie,and so on, from older sister to youngest Zinnia While it might feel daunting if you re an adult reading, I just thought it was the loveliest thing ever You know how kids get at that age I highly recommend it and I say don t do like I did, start with book one It would be a lotfun that way, with all the clues and stuff
