My daughter, Abby loved reading this book. She said that Esmerelda is awesome and liked that she included Eric in playing with her and her friends at recess. They made a new friend after inviting him to swing with them and he was happy. Abby also loved that Esmerelda has two black cats. She didn't like that Annie was mean at the beginning to Eric but in the end she was also playing with him and taking turns on the swings.
Abby did find some of the words a little hard but we read it together. She gives this book a 5 out of 5 and can't wait to read more of Esmerelda's adventures.
