My quick notes: This book was brought to my attention by my partner in crime, Dread. He said it was soon to be a major motion picture starring Robert De Niro. It tells the story of a young boy named Peter who goes to “war” with his grandpa because Grandpa moves in and takes over his room. It’s a fun look at the imagination and youthfulness of being young. I will note, as in other chapter books I’ve covered, I’ve had to skip over certain words and sentences that I deemed not appropriate for my 7 and 3 y/o kids. Nothing major, just words I steer them away from using. Perhaps my favorite part of the book is imaging De Niro acting out the part of Grandpa!
