A Flicker of Courage (Tales of Triumph and Disaster!)
A Flicker of Courage is a fun story about one mean ruler, four kids, and one amazing dog. One of the children does not know how to make friends and is trying to make a friend. The plot was entertaining and original. It was interesting when the mean ruler decided to have a parade and a fair to show kindness to his people. The characters are fun and lively. Henry is my favorite because he is kind and funny. The language in the book was easy to understand. The moral of the story is: Do not try to take all the attention. The book has pictures in it, but they are dull. They kind of went with the story but were random things. I would recommend this book to anyone ten and older who likes magic and adventure. I would recommend this book because it is funny. I have not read books similar to this before. I liked reading the book, and I think you will like it too.
A great quote from the book: “Apollo’s hands are cupped, and inside of the cup sits a lizard, an entirely unclothed lizard, no lizard trousers or lizard pajamas, or lizard anything else. A naked lizard.”
