    "This book is definitely one of my childhood favorites and probably one of the best books ever written for kids. If you're a big fan of the movie, than this book will definitely peak your interest. It goes into way more detail about Charlie and his family; also there's additional information about the epilogue of the story that the movie never addresses. I highly recommend this book to anyone as if spurs a lot of imagination and nostalgia in it's simplistic writing style."

    "While the book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has a berry in the title, it unfortunately is not about food. The word Huckleberry is actually his first name in the book. However, I guess that if you were specifically looked for food in the title it would work."

    "How can one go wrong with a Beatrix Potter story and for such a great price? I picked up a bunch of these short stories to read to my youngsters while we were on vacation. No need to carry a fifty pound bag of books on the road any more. The Kindle solved the problem with flying colors. If you haven't grown up with these books you'll love reading them to your children. Mine can't get enough."

    "I grew up watching the movie, but recently read the book. The book is a bit weird, too obscure and even thou the premise of a whimsical journey in a peach sounds appealing, the overall plot or message of the book was unclear. This is one of those cases in which I prefer the movie to the book. It's appropiate for all ages thou it's suppoused to be for children, it's imaginative but disturbing."

    "My child loves this book! It is easy and simple for her to read and asked for it to have been ready literally every night. She was able to easily read through the book by herself but still found some challenge for herself in a few of the words. This is a book that she will love from here on out and will probably read to her children when she grows up."

    "A Raisin in the Sun is not a cookbook! But is there a better book with food in the title? Seriously, though, I had to read this for high school and it has stuck with me. An absolute classic about race in America, it really has not lost its timeliness and insight. There's a reason it is required reading."
