Nice Book but short chapters

Review by pinkart2020

So I read this book. It was good but one thing I noticed was that the chapters were very short. I think this book is good for kids who don”t like to read very much but still will read a book if it’s short. I gave this book four stars because the only thing I wish there was to give five stars is if this book had longer chapters. But I do recommend this book though.

Review by sweetpuppy

Wishtree was a very good book. It was touching, and a little sad, but at the same time, funny, and happy. It is very well written, the characters are very well developed, and you learn to love ALL the characters. It also has a good ending, which is always a big plus. I've read a lot of Katherine Applegate's books, but this is already one of my favorites. If you like nature, animals, fiction, touching stories, and happy endings all mixed together, this book is for you!
