Fantasic, can't put down, excellent childs book
on 25 March 2011
My sons (whos 9) teacher gave him this book to read. My son is a reluctant reader so we read a page each but I can honestly say that this book has really encouraged his reading. The story starts in famine stricken Ireland and follows 2 children who travel to America to find their father. It is a fab book which end each chapter with a cliff hanger willing the child to read on. I would recommend this book for 10year olds+ it has a fantasic story and is full of sad and happy adventures.
