Well, my first full book in Spanish was "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe". {grin} It's fairly easy, especially since (I assume from your user name!) you already know the plot. If you have a Kindle, get a Spanish-English dictionary for it and set it as your default dictionary. Then you only have to highlight the word "castor" to learn that it means "beaver."

You may have a few problems if you haven't gotten to past preterit and past imperfect (he spoke and he used to speak/was speaking) in the tree yet. Past imperfect is probably the most common tense in fiction.

OK. I am a huge fan of The Chronicles of Narnia. But, I guess I will go on with Poco Loco first. It is easier, I guess. I've just reached 'Objects' on my tree, so I don't think that I will be half ready for that. Thanks, however, I'll read it when I am past more than half the tree. What do you think?

If you're less than halfway through the tree, then yes, wait. I wasn't quite finished with my tree when I started it, but I was within a few lessons of the end.

Yeah.... But would you agree with me with Poco Loco?
