Would you recommend this book to a friend?
Yes, because it has a bunch of really cool illustrations, and it's a cool story.
What do you like about reading?
It depends on what book -- if it's educational or not. I like the educational ones better. It depends on the illustrations, too. I like "Magic Tree House," "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "Junie B. Jones."
Do you think it's important to read?
Yes. You should always read every day. I used to make my dad read a book to me every night.
