My Opinion This isone of my favorite books. As I read this book I wished that I could have miniature friends too. I think the author did a great job with describing the characters because I had a clear image in my mind as to what they looked like. I could not wait to read it every night. My Aunt Kate and I had a book club and after every chapter we read, we talked about the parts we liked the best. I liked that they were British. I learned a lot about their culture and learned new words like biscuit for cookies, lorry for truck and that Toffo is a popular candy in England.
