I have come to the conclusion that everything written by Patricia Piccolo will be a winner, and this bookis no exception!
The story revolves around a boy Eli who visits his Aunt Chip. All the townspeople of Triple Creek have been sucked into too much TV watching and have totally forgotten how to seek joy from books. GASP! Because of the relationship between Aunt Chip and her nephew Eli, the town of Triple Creek learns the importance of reading and how it can effect their daily life.
If you haven't already picked this one up, I suggest that you do so today! It was as much fun to read as it was for my kids to listen!
