"An emotionally rich story about a boy caught in the powerful grip of grief." (Publishers Weekly)
Wonderful emotional layers. My 9 Yo granddaughter appreciated the emotional connections. Her favorite piece of the story was the realization of dad and son having each other. They both missed mom but they had each other. They were not alone in their feelings of loss.
Easy read for my 10 year old. He enjoyed it and passed the AR test with flying colors!!! Highly recommend!!! Although the ending may be a little sad for very young readers. Overall a great book and narration!!!
I loved this book. As a book for young readers, I was delightfully surprised as I enjoyed it very much for myself as It has very mature issues. I was thinking about it for my 10 year old nephew, but it is not for him.
the southern voices everybody has makes me happy.
willy may because she was like a second mother to rob. and would give great advice
makes me very relaxed and makes me sleep good . his voice is very gifted
yes when the father killed the tiger and got the beat by rob and told his father that he has to say the mothers name
they should make sequals to this book
Book my son was reading and I got. I'm glad I did. Narrators voice made book and characters come alive. I highly Recommend it.
This is the first audioboook I have used with my students. My 4th graders found it very interesting and were to relate to the characters in the story.
What I liked best about the story is that it was easy to put yourself in the character's shoes and imagine how that must feel.
My favorite scene was where Rob was working the wood and was surprised at what he had carved.
