Book Review #690
Shen Of The Sea by Arthur Bowie Chrisman, illustrated by Else Hasselriis
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I stopped reading this book after about 1 and a half stories. I found the stories slightly interesting, but got a little hung over the names and places. They were so different from anything I was used to and I had a hard time keeping them straight. I eventually fell asleep while reading this book and never picked it up again. I only feel slightly bad because it is a Newbery Medal. I might recommend this book, it just wasn't for me.
