Review:
My God, what were they thinking at Harcourt? Are they smoking crack? Richard Howard has butchered beyond recognition my favorite book of all time. Please avoid his lifeless new translation and seek out the original Katherine Woods translation while it is still available. The new translation is cold and artless, utterly lacking the subtle beauty of Woods' edition. Get a rope and a whip. This is a crime.

Review:
Although a touch dull at first, this book later shapes up to be yet another one of Brian Jaques materpieces. I strongly agree with Stephanie. It is not "a story about some stupid badger" it is a fantastical piece woven by a reknowned story teller. If you do not enjoy books where all characters are animals, or did not like any other book by Brian Jaques, then this is not for you. To anyone else, I highly reccomend this. I am 13 and am dead jealous of those who have read the entire series.

Review:
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling offers up equal parts danger and delight--and any number of dragons, house-elves, and death-defying challenges. Now 14, her orphan hero has only two more weeks with his Muggle relatives before returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Yet one night a vision harrowing enough to make his lightning-bolt-shaped scar burn has Harry on edge and contacting his godfather-in-hiding, Sirius Black. Happily, the prospect of attending the season's premier sporting event, the Quidditch World Cup, is enough to make Harry momentarily forget that Lord Voldemort and his sinister familiars--the Deat...
