I (Brian) think I never read a book before like this one. I like it because I think it's unique from other books. I've never read a book about some one hating a language. All the other books I've read were adventures. My favorite part of the book is the part when I see Chinese words because I would like to learn different languages. My favorite character is Mei Mei because she reminds me of myself because I didn't want to learn Korean but I learned that it was important.
My (Sean's) favorite part is when she learns English because it is better for her get along with her American friends. I say the illustrations are great and they have a lot of details. I think this is a great book because it was the first time I saw Chinese words. I have somebody in my class and it's hard for her because she is Korean and she doesn't know English very much.
We think the lesson is some things you don't want to learn might be good for the future.
We recommend this book to people who don't want to learn a language because this book might have the solution. We think everyone who wants to learn a language would also like this book.
