I am an upper elementary teacher who loves reading and sharing books with my students and fellow educators.

Splendors and Glooms

Splendors and Glooms - Laura Amy Schlitz It seemed to me the ending dragged on after the story lines had basically been resolved and the additional scene didn't seem to add anything to the depth of the story. I liked the story, but don't think it will stay with me - I feel like I should have been more invested in the main characters than I was. The whole story seemed a little slow, I'm not sure how students will like it. Some students might have problems with Parsefal's vernacular. There are several uncaring adult figures, but I didn't find any objectionable descriptions. Grade 5+
