    1. Of course, nothing compares to the chunky unabridged version; but this is a decent intro for young readers to the epic Don Quixote.


    2. Collapsing the grandly episodic Don Quixote into a slender children's novel was never going to be an easy quest -- nor even a possible one. Too much is lost in the compacted storytelling. The subtle ironies that guide the novel's themes are translated into language that's too literal -- and not romantic enough.I definitely would NOT recommend this as an introduction to Don Quixote. I read it partly out of curiosity -- with a possible eye to use it in the classroom, but I don't think there's much [...]


    3. I read this with one of my kids and also for a 5th grade class I am teaching a Language Arts unit on this. There are quite a few lessons to be learned for youngsters within this story - friendship, kindness, facing responsibility, gratitude, humility, accepting who you are, helping others,d perhaps even dealing with the mentally ill among us. The gist of the story as I see it: What happens when rigid ideology clashes with cold, hard reality.


    4. My students absolutely adored this book. Not sure how they'll feel about it in college when they realize the 980 page original is as disjointed as the children's edition they read in 5th grade. Just a bunch of stories loosely tacked together with a running thread of fart jokes and violence. Sounds like a fifth grade boy's dream, though. Doesn't it? Anyway 3 stars for entertaining my students and setting them up for some fun character studies.


    5. Not having read the original (or the translation of the originalough I have a copy of it on my bookshelf which makes me suspect that I read at least part of it for a college class, but have no memory of it), it seems like a good introduction to the work. This is an abriged version, which I had my 5th grader read for history. I read it as well, so I could provide help w/ the book report.



    6. Adventures of Don Quixoteby Argentina Palacios is a short adaptation designed for children. It is well done and includes most of the adventures of Don Quixote and Sancho Pancha in an easy to understand format for elementary schoolers. It’s a great introduction that will hopefully make kids want to read the real thing when they are a little older.




    7. After seeing the ballet twice I was intrigued to know the original story. I love how sweet and imaginative it is, it's a nice easy read and I'd happily read more.


    8. This book teaches us that we need to keep our imagination and dreams in control. Don Quixote began seeing things, such as windmills, enchanted. it was not my favorite book.
