Not just for kids. Konigsburg is ageless.
Would you listen to The View from Saturday again? Why?
I will listen to this book again; it's delightful on many levels. It's a mood enhancer.
Any additional comments?
This is a charming tale - 5 stories within a story from the viewpoints of one paraplegic teacher and 4 sixth graders whose lives entwine, first because of family connections, then friendship connections and then the teacher selects them to be teammates in a knowledge bowl. Their individual and collective knowledge makes them formidable contestants and they defeat 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams to reach the state finals. The questions they are asked segue into each tale. Each voice is distinct; each story different. The narration is brilliant. The characters are people I wish I knew personally so I could go to tea with them.

Really Good Book
Coming from y 9 year old daughter, she really enjoyed this book a lot! She hasn't stopped talking about the story, and the twists and turns it has. Please note I do my best to get her adventure books without killings and violence. So this was a keeper!
