My son LOVED this book. All of his friends have read it as well. I had no idea about the history of it. VERY cool indeed.
Great story. I read about 30 pages of it this morning. I can see how they would want to make a movie out of it.
My son is also a huge fan- I never knew the background tho!
im a kid myself i love these books! you would think boys would read them but a bunch girls in my class including me read them as well as boys these books rock i can totally relate to them!
