Oh the places you'll go with positive attitude! This story teaches young children that they might come across some challenges, difficult times, and new opportunities in life, but the important thing is to keep a good attitude, an open mind, and try new things! This book is filled with lessons of courage and determination!

I don't know why, but I was expecting way more out of this story.

Overall, the plot is intriguing, and the twist was well laid out. I def. didn't see parts of it coming, but I also feel like it could have been a stronger read if the pacing was a bit faster. I found myself bored throughout many parts of the story. Bouncing around in Elin's head was a bit taxing, and the big reveal about her was brush off too fast.

The setting for the story, being a sanatorium turned hotel, had all the factors of being creepy af, but they weren't being utilized. Instead we are left following around a detective—that is clearly suffering but that too isn't being fully utilized—wondering when the pizzazz is going to happen.

Can't say I'm interested in continuing the series, but it was a satisfying enough read.

You'll love this book if you enjoy mysteries that are toned down, and relaxing to read. ( )

This book is such an emotional book. Every time I read it I cry a little. It reminds me of all the things what we will do in our lives. This is an extremely easy read. I teach some kids I work with to read Dr. Seuss books, because most of the words are sight words. ( )

e auteur heeft ook hier weer een stevig absurd verhaal gecreëerd dat je meesleept doorheen zijn wondere wereld, waarin je van de ene verbazing in de andere valt.
Het vertelstandpunt vanuit het jongetje dwingt je tot kiezen en meeleven. Zo leidt dit boek ook tot reflecteren en vertalen naar je eigen, herkenbare wereld.
De tekst op rijm is doordacht geconstrueerd en leest vlot.
De fantasierijke woordenschat wekt verwondering op en dwingt respect af.
En doordat het hoogst absurde, quasi-nonsens-gehalte gelinkt blijft aan de herkenbare realiteit, verlies je nergens het spoor.
De fantasierijke prenten in ouderwets aandoende kleuren versterken de tekst en vice versa. Te gekke figuren met een grote beweeglijkheid en overduidelijke expressies loodsen je doorheen de absurde, eigengereide wereld van Dr. Seuss, waarin het goed vertoeven is.
