The Wild Book
Juan’s mother is upset because his father recently left for Paris, and Juan is worried that his parents are going to get a divorce. In the middle of his troubles, his mother tells him that he will be spending the summer away from home, with his great-uncle Tito in a dusty old house filled to overflowing with library books. When Juan arrives at Tito’s house, his uncle lets him in on a secret: the books move about on their own! And there’s a book, a white book, an unwritten book – the Wild Book – that Juan learns he must help his uncle find before the Pirate Book finds it and destroys it.
This book is awesome. It is very interesting; there are just so many books, and it strikes on so many topics. It is also a great adventure story, one that is even believable because the author’s name is also Juan, so that is really funny. I like how the Wild Book acts – the books are characters in this story, too, and some of them become good friends with Juan and help him. This is a great story for anyone who loves books like I do!
