This review is from: Boomtown: Chang's Famous Fireworks (Hardcover)
Boomtown: This book sort of reminded me of Charley and the Chocolate factory. It was kind of quirky that way. As an adult, I had a hard time sticking with this book. As an adult female I should say. My 12 year old started to read the book. He has to be coaxed into reading. Although he hasn't finished the book, what he had read, he seems to enjoy at this point.
I felt the story was a little choppy...seemed to not flow well through out the book. I think a young boy would find the humor in this book.
This is a Christian author. There isn't much Christianity taught through out the book, however the father is a pastor.
Boomtown is a qwarky little place for the Buttons to live...They have interesting things happening to them, even before they got the Boomtown. Things keep going haywire..there are many celebrations that involve fireworks at every turn.
As I stated above, I think young boys will enjoy this book. I generally enjoy other types of books. But if you are looking for something for a young boy, with a great imagination, and clean writing, then this is the book.
