I just read this book and it's outstanding. I'm have way through it. When my mom tells me I have to go to bed I say just one more paragraph. She'll say, no then I say a sentence, she'll say no. Then I say a word, and somtimes I can but the I do a paragraph instead.I like is book so much my mom has to come to cheak on me because I read at night.
It was a great book I read it because I was in a book club, my teacher said that it was a great book and it was. It was about a 15 year old boy named Simon Green traveling all the way from Missouri to Denver with a thousend turkeys and on his way he meet a few friends and foes. It was a good book thats all i will tell you about it now you have to read it to find out the rest.
I read this book about a year ago, and have laughed about it many times since. A Determined boy sets out at the greatest odds to herd a thousand turkeys to Denver- and picks up a few friends and foes along the way. The plot is quick and fun, and the characters are real people you can relate to. It makes you wonder- could I do something like that? Good and wholesome reading for all ages.
