      This book is INCREDIBLE! I have not finished reading it yet, but I definitely will finish it on my vacation that starts tomorrow. It is a compelling read. I don’t want to write in it as it is so beautiful, but I am keeping notes on sticky notes. I was a bit confused about the Poisonous Mushroom part – did her uncle copy that down? He didn’t write it, did he? I was also completely struck by the letter from Dr. Seuss to the troops. I will keep reading, and post again, but I do not think I will make the 8th deadline.
