Amazing book!By Jennifer W.The book is filled with local history; however, all readers will appreciate the adventures of Ted and Poudlum since they are typical boys who get themselves into lots of mischief and have to figure out how to get out of it. Students love Mr. Dunagan's books! I have


many copies in my library and they are always checked out! Mr. Dunagan is an amazing, soft-spoken speaker who mesmerizes students as he talks to them about his experiences as an author and reads portions of his books aloud. The students groan when he finishes because they want to hear more! He spoke to my students a week ago and they were so enthralled! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Dunagan and his books!0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
