Review by Westley.
This story is about a little boy and his dad a long time ago. The little boy buys a toy for his baby brother. The dad goes to one of the first bankers and the little boy ask the banker to hold his toy for his baby brother so he doesn’t lose it at the Palio di Siena horse race. Then he loses the receipt to get the toy back!
I liked when he lost the receipt and the banker gave back the toy even though he didn’t have the receipt since it was a present for his baby brother. I like the pictures and the artwork because they were pretty. They had lots of detail.
I think people who like history would like this book. This is a story about a time that was real, but the people aren’t real.
Book by Louis Sachar
This book is about a boy who gets sent to a place for getting blamed for stealing some famous shoes. The place is called Green Lake. The boys have to dig holes which is suppose to build character. Each hole must be five feet deep and five feet wide. If they find anything interesting, they show it to the warden. If she likes it, she gives them the day off.
I would recommend the book to kids who like an adventurous book.
