The Leaky Story: A fun-filled adventure into the power of the imagination and the magic of books!
This is a fiction book. In this story, a little boy named J.J. Blossburn is at home and looks up on his shelf to see a book called The Leaky Story. And guess what this book is really getting ready to do? That’s right, it’s getting ready to spring a leak! It spills water all over the house and also sends out other creatures (some are men!). J.J. and his parents must find a way to clean up their house, get rid of the creatures and men, and get the water back into the book! Will they be successful? You’ll have to read the story to find out!
This is a really neat story with very colorful illustrations. The story is told in regular verse rather than poetry. Even so, one of my favorite lines in the story is “Quick, pass the sword! Grab the cutlass!” From this line, you can probably guess what kind of men the Blossburn family was battling. Readers who love adventures, leaks, and pirates would enjoy this story, especially readers who are five- to nine-years old.
