There are books so alive that you’re always afraid that while you weren’t reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?

Charlie tries to trick his little sister into eating "good-for-you" food like peas and tomatoes. But who is doing the tricking?

This award-winning book is kind of funny, though I didn't like it very much. I did really like the pictures even though Charlie looks like a girl. I hear you should really read it a couple times to get the most enjoyment out of it. Some teachers at my school really like it. Try it out, you might enjoy it.
