This is a great book. My favorite part was the story about polio. It was a sad time. One reason I liked this book is because it shows how life was back when war was going on. I really thought that John the boy was interesting. He did actually dip a girl's hair in ink! He is a lot like me!
I recommend this book because it has such cool stories. I think this book is good for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders because it has a lot of hard words. If you read this book, you will always want to turn the page.
