Worst Reviews

School Library Journal rounds up the worst reviews authors have received for their juvenile projects.

The individual who put together the roundup notes that mean reviews often say more about the reviewer than the book. Mean reviews should of course be separated from reviews that pan a work for reasons that are thought out and argued in a logical manner.

In the end, the roundup is at the least proof that even award-winning authors of high-quality literature are not immune to people who have nothing better to do than pan works for reasons that have nothing to do with the book’s quality.
