The book was great. As a teacher that has experienced so many boys that do not like to read, this will work great in the classroom. I ordered several copies to give as gifts to the boys in the family as well. The illustrations went great with the text and the young boy was brought to life. As with this book as well as with the other books from this author, we can all relate to these experiences. I can’t wait until the next book comes out. Every elementary classroom needs to have this in their class library as well as in the school library. I congratulate the author for bringing us something so meaningful.
