I can relate to Abilene, because I am very close to an item that belongs to me. The book made me think about how sad I would be If I lost something. Edward taught me the lesson that I should be thankful for the nice things I have. After he was lost by Abilene, he realized that all the nice things he had went away. Also, Edward goes through a lot of scary things while he is away from Abilene. He was lost in the ocean for a long time. I can relate to Edward because I know what it is like to be scared. However, Edward teaches us that things will get better.
I think this book would be appropriate for 3rd and 4th graders. The reason I think this is because the plot is easy to understand and the words are not too hard to read. Even though I am in fifth grade it was still a great book to read. If you like fiction books then you will just fall in love with this book ,and just get lost in Edward’s amazing adventure.
