This book was not a very informative one and it was a book a 4th grader should read. I think that the author didn't put enough detail in the story or enough emotions that should be shown throughout the story. I think that this book is more of a quick-read book or in other words weekend reading. In the end I think that this book was just listing facts that the author had but the author didn't have many.
