    "A lovely story about love, family, loss, strength and change. It is great to read-aloud in a classroom or group setting. It will hook the reader until the very end. "

    "Sharon Creech is one of my favorite authors. I wanted to read another book of hers so I picked up Love That Dog (Jack). It was a really interesting story and I could not put it down until I finished. I was really happy to read another one of her books and will be finding a new one to read soon."

    "Sharon Creech has really outdone herself with "Chasing Redbird". The book was deep, identifiable and gives great insight and reminder to how children process death. Experience is a great teacher when dealing with grief and this book provides that."

    "This solution is moderately sufficient as it provides a book written my Sharon Creech. It also provides when it was published and what it followed. However, I don't believe this would qualify as her "best books" as she had two other books nominated for awards. (Newbery Medal winner Walk Two Moons and the Newbery Honor Book The Wanderer)"

    "Ad feedback Search customer reviews Search SORT BY Top rated FILTER BY All reviewers All stars All formats Text, image, video 4.0 out of 5 starsBlackbird Tree and Mystery ByKate Coombson January 19, 2013 Format: Hardcover I'm trying to think how to explain this book, and I have to say it's sort of a mix of Tuck Everlasting (the setting and tone), The Secret Garden crossed with A Little Princess (um, a different setting and tone that gets together with the first setting and tone and hangs out), and a dash of Jacob Have I Loved. Plus déjà vu. Naomi and her best friend Lizzie Scatterding live in a small American town with colorful characters like Crazy Cora, Witch Wiggins, and Mister Farley. Two strangers come to town, an elusive and appealing boy named Finn and an odd foreign man named Mr. Dingle. Meanwhile, an old woman named Mrs. Kavanagh and Miss Pilpenny across the ocean in Ireland are scheming to--well, it's not clear what they're scheming to do, exactly. But they're the ones who sent Mr. Dingle to Blackbird Tree. As for Finn, he seems to have shown up by magic, and he may represent the quarrel that caused all the trouble for the two women in Ireland. Or he may be lost. Or magical. Or something. But Naomi gets jealous over Finn... and there are all these little statues of crows that seem to mean something. Not to mention a horrible fear of dogs. This book is a strange jumble, but a likable one. Some parts of the plots are a little unclear, but I still liked The Great Unexpected. In fact, the way all these mysteries fit together is worth following. At the end, a few things are left floating in an Irish mist. But enough of it makes sense to leave readers happy. The book is perhaps more magical realism than flat-out fantasy--a whimsical, atmospheric story. As always, Sharon Creech knows how to tell a tale. And her language is just wonderful. "

    "Bloomability is one of the best books by Sharon Creech. This is a wonderful account of an American girl in the care of her aunt and uncle adapting to life in an international boarding school in Switzerland. No complicated plot twists or anything, just a well written story with a simple premise at the heart"
