This sounds like a cute story, as I enjoyed "The Briar Patch" also. Thank you for a great review and recommendation!

It's similar to The Briar Patch. If you liked that, you'd probably enjoy this one. Thanks for your comment.

Great review! It's always nice when a children's book can be both fun and educational. I agree that Baboquivari is hard to pronounce, to say the least!

Yes! I still don't know how it's supposed to be pronounced. I suppose I should Google it. Thanks bookowlie!

The cover picture made me think this would be targeted at a younger audience. The plot that you mentioned does make it see appropriate for older kids. This would be a fun read (for all ages!) Great review.

I think younger kids could enjoy it, but it would have to be read to them. Thanks for your comments!

I thought it was a little twist on The Briar Patch . Sounds like an interesting story. I would like to read it. Thanks for the review.

It's a great story! I enjoyed it, and I'm not in the age range. Thanks.
