Book Review #290
The Contest by Nonny Hogrogian
Rating: zero stars (out of four)
I am appalled that this is a children's book, what kind of morals are we trying to teach our children? Corruptness and thievery? The girl in this story was absolutely not worth anything, the way she used those two robbers. I can't believe that this book won the Caldecott Honor. I did not like this story, it is a horrible example of children's literature and I would never recommend it to anyone.
