Book Review #358
The Wall by Peter Sis
Rating: one star (out of four)

This book was interesting.  Not in a oh-I-didn't-know-about-that-interesting, but more like a um-okay-interesting.  I had a hard time following the story, it seemed chopped and random.  I also didn't really care for the layout of the book.  It was like a couple stories that were woven together, but not done well enough for full clarity and meaning.  I also did not care for the illustrations at all.  I didn't think they were worth a Caldecott.  I wouldn't recommend this book, it had all the pieces to be a great story, but somehow, they just didn't work.
