Teachers, writers, and editors are saying...

✎“I adore your story. It’s such an authentic scoop of a rather exotic childhood.” - David Greenberg, author

✎“You captured that childhood sense of adventure and curiosity that got us into all sorts of hairbreadth ‘scapes.” – David Ervin, Editor in Chief, Military Experience and the Arts

✎“A fascinating true story every child should hear or read! Kids are drawn to the details – like going barefoot everywhere, and they understand how easy it is to test the boundaries of right and wrong. Charming! Well-written. Not your usual story.” – Amy J.

✎“This is an engaging story. Discussion questions and vocabulary definitions are a very nice extra. As a reading specialist, one can never have too many stories on hand!” – Karen G.
