A very good book, any book that interests people is a good book, and of the same genre, down from the mountains. This book was given as a gift to a child participating in the Summer Reading Program at the Nocona Public Library, Nocona, Texas. The book is colorful, engaging and keeps the child interested.
This has exceeded my expectations. I like how the narrator uses the highlights of the story to describe the characters. It always makes my mind work, think and process everything that happens in the book.
