Eben McAllister is an 11-year-old boy who lives in a small farming town in Sassafras Springs. He has a bet with his dad that if he can find 7 wonders in 7 days around Sassafras Springs he can go on a train to Colorado. Eben gets really excited because he was just researching the 7 Wonders of the World. He thinks that it is going to be easy, but finds out that it is a lot more difficult than he expected. With his dog they go and search for wonders in their town. They run into some trouble on the way. But Eben has a whole lot of fun searching for wonders in his small town because everyone wants him to hear their story. Eben, Aunt Pretty, Pa and Jeb are the main characters. Betty G. Birney is the author of this fictional book Overall I liked the idea of Eben finding wonders because it was an interesting plot. I liked that he was working towards a goal to go to Colorado. It made me want to read on. But when the wonders were so pointless it turned me off. I would not recommend this book for children over 8 years old. I would recommend this book for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade teachers for a read a loud. It was more appropriate for younger kids. For kids my age it is too unrealistic.
