I loved this book. I think the author got inside of my head as a 10 year old girl to write it. It was like Teaspoon's thoughts raced her tongue to the end so quickly it was over before I knew it, and I totally rode her red scooter with her.

I thought this was a very cute book. However, there needs to be an appropriateness label on it. I don't think 10 year olds should read it. It had some inappropriate topics and way too much inappropriate language. I don't think it is a book anyone under 16 should probably read.

This book is cute. However, it is inappropriate for anyone under age 16. It has inappropriate topics and too much bad language.

Luckily, this book is found in the adult area, where most children and teens aren't looking for books to read.

didn't like it i fealt the author's idea of who a child thinks and sees the world is incorrect and patronizing.
