    One thought on “The Song of Pentecost”

    1. Loses the reader's interest at times but overall a delightful book that is not afraid to confront issues of deceit, death, sacrifice and the inherent injustices of life - themes that childrens' novels often shy away from.

    2. [Short review from memory until I re-read and re-review at a later date:A little bit Watership Down, but I don't recall anything else. Not great, obviously, from the rating, buuut I'm sure it had it's charming moments.]

    3. This fantastic story follows a group of mice moving from a soon-to-be-bulldozed garbage dump to their new home. Along the way, they meet a cast of devious characters including a lying frog, a selfish snake, a double-agent insect, and eventually an owl who eats. you guessed it.I read this book when I was in Jr. High and kept it- it sits on my shelf waiting for my own children to be old enough to read. It's hard to put my finger on what I love so much about this book- the characterizations are won [...]

    4. I loved this book when I was small, like a nicer version of Watership Down. I think it'd probably still be good to read as an adult.

    5. This was one of my favourite children's books growing up, and reading again as an adult I still enjoyed it.
