Reviews for Hatchet

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring
This handsome large-format twentieth-anniversary edition features a new introduction and conversational sidebars written by Paulsen that personalize some of the novel's material. Naturalistic sepia-tone drawings are lovely but would be better suited to illustrate a nature journal than a survival story. Readers may be put off by the book's large size, but teachers will especially appreciate the additional content. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
