This review is brought to you by the lovely 8 year old who lives in my house. We’ll call her C. for anonymity’s sake.
Book: The Boxtrolls by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel. It’s best for kids in grades 4-6. Strong sense of humor and some gross language. There is a corresponding movie, but we haven’t watched it yet.
