Review: Escape from Baxters’ Barn

Escape from Baxters' Barn
Escape from Baxters’ Barn by Rebecca Bond

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a sweet and gentle-paced tale that may appeal to fans of Dick King Smith, E.B. White, and Pinky Pye. It would make a great bedtime read aloud for younger children ready for some nail-biting peril (followed by the inevitable satisfying ending). Three stars instead of more because the writing at the beginning is stilted and you have to push through it. As the story gets going, Bond hits a smoother rhythm and the patient reader is rewarded.
