I read this book in the third grade and loved it. When I got older I wanted to read it again and could never find it. I went to different library's and thrift stores looking for it. When I was 19yrs old my mom called me up asking if I wanted to follow her to the new thrift store that opened up; I almost didn't go cuz I was sick. I'm so glad I did cuz I found it. OMG i jumped up and down and screamed a very high pitched scream i never thought i could do. Lol. my mom said she never seen me so happy. :D I'm 25yrs old now and have three kids of my own. I still have the book and I can't wait to share it with them. :)
