    1. Okay, I was sitting in church today, thinking about writing a review for this book online. I would have listened to the speakers, exceptey were boring. I'm sorry! They are nice people. But really boring.So anyways, this has to be one of the best books ever written, of all time. I read it 500 times (I could be exaggerating) between 3rd and 5th grade. I LOVED this book. I still have it.It's about a girl named Jennifer who falls asleep on the school bus one day, only to awaken to find herself in a [...]

    2. I dearly loved this book when I was in elementary school. It was the first fantasy book I read where the damsel wasn't in distress. I would highly recommend it to anyone, young or old, who enjoys a thoroughly good tale with monsters and castles. Also, if you can find a used copy so much the better, as the old cover illustration (with the main characters looking scared and giant talons coming down from the sky)captured the story much better than this new one.

    3. Interestingly enough, I still read this book sometimes. It's not very long at all, but I love the plot and the storyline. This book was the very first I read that introduced me to a fantasy world.At the time I read it when I was about 8, it intensely captured my interest and perpetuated my desire to continue reading books with fantasy themes.

    4. Another children's book with a plot so vivid it has stuck with me all these years and I had to look it up on the internet (bless the internet!). A tale of an ordinary girl transported to a magical world where she is a forgotten princess with special powers to stop the evil harpies. Awesome!

    5. This was a re-read I just pulled off my bookshelf. I've probably read it at least 20 times and it's not very big or very deep but it's a fun little adventure If I ever wrote a novel it would be like this!

    6. This is one of the only books I can consistently read again, and again. Definitely a childhood favourite.

    7. This was one of my favorites when I was probably 11 or 12 years old, read it until the cover fell off and the pages started to crumble. That was 30 years ago (oy) and I've just read it to my children for the first time, having saved my old copy all these years. I'm so happy that they liked it, we read a lot of fantasy stories and I love to pass on a little of my childhood to them.

    8. Reason for Reading: This is another book from the Randomly Selected Bookshelf that I am reading from this year. I have not read this before but I have always had a copy of it. One of the purposes of reading from this shelf is to move books out of the house. This one will be sent off to Bookmooch.Jennifer is on her way to school looking out the window at the forest, daydreaming when suddenly she is inside a horse drawn carriage, taken to a palace and everyone is calling her Princess Miranda. She [...]

    9. So, I was expecting something different from this book. I actually spent the first 50 pages (granted, they're quick pages) cursing Abby and Danae for having read and liked this book. I just assumed it was something "grown-ups" could appreciate, but I spent the entire time feeling like I was back in 5th grade. And I probably wouldn't have liked it all that much then.For one thing, every character was so grievously stereotypical (even down to their names) that I could predict their dialogue before [...]

    10. This was my favorite book as a young girl. It was the first book that my mom bought me from the scholastic book fair in the second grade and I was so excited. I can't remember how many times I read this book growing up, it's defiantly had a big impact on my life and is probably the origin for my love of fantasy/science fiction books. I think all young girls should have that chance to read this book.

    11. The GoodReads description lists this as being published in 2001, but I have an old edition from 1983 that I loved as a child. Jennifer is riding the bus to school, fretting about not having completed her homework, when she suddenly finds herself in a world that she never could have imagined. Full of jesters, Chancellors, trolls, goblins, harpies, princes and princesses, it is a fun story that any little girl would love.

    12. After YEARS of having slight memories of this book, I finally stumbled back across it by total accident. I'm so happy!!! I remember reading it over & over again and liking it so much in elementary school -- maybe 4th or 5th grade? I'm looking forward to reading it again as an adult - primarily because I want to see what comes back in my memory.

    13. I loved this book when I was in middle school. I think this was my first introduction to fantasy books and I remember really loving the feeling of losing myself in a book. Can't wait to reread it and see if it stands up to time. I'm sure it won't be as good to a 30 year old as it is to a 5th grader but that's ok.

    14. Read it as a child. It is responsible for my first taste of 'fantasy' to which I still love today! This was a great read as I child and I read it several times as such. I recently read it again, now in my thirties, and found it such a charming little book I hope all my nieces will read!

    15. Another fantastic kiddie-lit read. I re-read this book in the last few years and liked it just as well as I did my first time through, which was in 4th grade. Such a great read, but probably more intriguing for little girls.

    16. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS BOOK FOR A VERY, VERY LONG TIME!I first read it in the fourth grade, and I loved it so much, but I ABSOLUTELY could not remember what the title was, or who the author was! I'm so glad I found it!

    17. A wonderful book about a girl named Jennifer. The story starts with Jennifer asleep in her school bus, and when she wakes up, she finds herself in a carriage!Though the book has many themes related to magic, I give it a rating of 4/5.

    18. I was recommended this book but I never thought that it would be as short as a child's book. I finished the book quickly but it was a nice fairy-tale-like story and I enjoyed it. I'm definitely over the age limit for this book but I still enjoyed it lol

    19. One of my favorite books from my childhood. I stole it off my sister's bookshelf in elementary school. A girl falls asleep on her school bus on the way to school and wakes up in another world. How great is that? She has to save the day of course without any super powers or abilities. Nice :)

    20. I really like this book! Many people would think by seeing the cover of this book that it might be babyish, but it is an amazing and very touching story. Although it has a lot of wizardry and magic it has some very good lessons to teach you if you read it. I loooovvve it!

    21. Both I AND my older brother treasured this book during our childhoods. I think it was one of my first intros to fantasy. It felt grown-up to me because it had chapters. The old cover was much more appealing, though.

    22. an incredible book that apparently nobody else has read. a captured princess! villianous birds! secret tunnels in a castle and a cast of odd conspirators and enemies. and it all starts on a school buse edition i read is out of print now, and i can't find my copy, but this'll do.

    23. Loved this book as a girl, so much so it's been on my mind. I dug through some boxes at my parents house, found it, and can't wait to read it to my daughter. A great fantasy book for young girls, I hope my daughter enjoys it as much as I did/do.

    24. This was a fun, simple, family-friendly book with a VERY predictable plot and stereotypical characters. I read it to Emma at bedtime, and she enjoyed it well enough. Good for young kids, especially those learning to read kid novels.

    25. I read this book a long time ago when I was in public school, and I still really like it. Yes, it's for a younger audience. Yes, it can be a little predictable. But it's a story from my childhood, and I still have the book. It's a really quick read, but I still enjoy it!

    26. This was one of my favorite and most cherished books as a kid. Great fairy tale without just rehashing old plots.

    27. One of my favourite stories from my childhood, and perhaps the first Fantasy I ever happened upon and loved.

    28. It's been a long time since I've read this book. However, I remember really loving it when I was a kid. I read it so much that the book is all worn out and the front cover is missing.
