5.0 out of 5 stars Plain old good children's literature, 20 Feb 1997
By A Customer
_Minna_ is not your typical children's book. It has all of the elements that make up a good novel for its age group--a good plot and characters and emotions children can identify with--but it is much more. This is one of those books I term an "in-between book"; it is excellent for children who have graduated beyond reading simply for plot, but are not yet ready for adult books. This book is an excellent blending of good plot and character/thematical development.
I don't limit my reccommendation to just children, however; I think it is an excellent story for anyone of any age to read and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best children's book ever!, 7 May 2002
By A Customer
i fell in love with this book the first time i read it, and i have since reread so many times i have lost count. it is beautifully written, and there is a certain magic about it that simply cannot be put into words. i'd recommend it not just to children but also to all those people who sometimes wonder about what animal they'd like to be in their next life, and those who talk to musicians or poets long dead when they think nobody can hear them...
