Great historical fiction
What did you like best about this story?
Avi does a wonderful job of setting the historical scene. He always gives my children a sense of time and place in his descriptions of the buildings, landscape, clothing, etc... It's a great way to connect to the past without feeling like you're getting "schooled".
What does Chris Sorensen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Chris Sorensen provides a wonderful New York accent - and attitude - when narrating this story. My children like how he draws us into the story.
Any additional comments?
Avi is one of our favorite authors for children's literature. He doesn't use dumbed down language and his characters are always fleshed out well. He doesn't shy away from difficult issues or death. When a beloved character does die, my children feel the loss!
