It has a good story line with unexpected twists. Though I think it is a bit mature for a 4th grader to read. But I know for sure that guardians will be able to explain it to the young ones.
The life lesson is commendable.
For the book itself, I like that the author managed to put pictures inside. Though I wish that he was able to edit them somehow.
If we focused on the story line, it was good and parents should make it a point to read these kind of stories to their kids. As an adult, I know that the author will find a way to improve the books interface.


A good story for kids to read. My nephew read this and he seemed to be hooked. At first we read the introduction together then I left him to do some house chore; but I was surprised he seemed to keep his interest even after I had left. He is in 4th grade and so is the main character; I think he was curious to know what happened with the class project. The sections are fairly short; that’s one good thing about this short story. It has few images also.
