Really enjoyed reading about his adventures
I bought this for my daughter as a birthday gift, she said that she enjoyed it but made her feel some sadness sometimes reading it. She felt excited once she received it.
Thanks to Bill Barker for all of his time that he put into writing it. I bought the books for my granddaughters for their birthdays
