Comments

  1. Thanks for this great, great review, Travis! I love this book, the event in part for me is a nostaglic trip back to childhood, memories of elementary school days.

    • Travis says:

      I’ve been hearing other folks saying that as well – I suppose that’s a good sign that Wiles really captured the era well.

  2. Great job. I love your Toon review! (is that you in the blue shirt?) We have the same timing. I just posted my review of Countdown last night. In addition to the great trailer, Scholastic also offers a discussion guide, a booktalk, and a PDF excerpt.
