Pangur Ban, the White Cat


My Review:

I loved this book (well, the whole series) as a child, and I was delighted to see it's being republished now. I have to admit that reading it as an adult (and as an author myself) I realized it wasn't quite as perfect as I thought at age ten. It would have been nice to see a little more showing and less telling, and to have a few more details filling in the blanks between certain parts of the story. Still, it's a lovely adventure tale with vivid and memorable characters and some great lessons for young readers to learn. I recommend this to older elementary students or middle-schoolers who enjoy fantasy, or to the young at heart.
