This book comes packed with action and text.

We read the first book out loud all together, but my kids couldn’t wait that long for this installment. We checked the second book out of the library one afternoon, and my eleven year old had it finished before dinner. By bedtime, he was well into his second reading. If you want to find out how the tale of the Redding family fortunes ends, you’ll have to pry this book out of your child’s hands and read it yourself.
