Wolfie and Fly
This book is about a girl who really likes facts and doesn’t have many friends. Then she meets a boy who is really different from her, and they go on a cool journey in a cardboard submarine. Fly (the boy) teaches the girl (Wolfie) how to have an imagination.
I really liked how Wolfie handles her parents and is honest about what she wants to do. For instance, her parents really want her to buy new clothes, but she just buys the same clothes she likes to wear. I liked that Fly is funny and sings songs. The songs reminded me of Francis in Bread and Jam for Francis. This is part of one of the songs I really liked: “Wolfie, oh Wolfie, you did the right thing. You opened the door, and you let me run in.”
I would have liked it if the illustrations were not just black and white, but that is what you usually get in a chapter book. I think kids five- to eight-years-old might like this book, especially kids who are really creative and like building things.
I am interested to know what they do next together because I especially liked when they were traveling in their cardboard submarine. I could picture the sea creatures and started a submarine in my bedroom after reading this book. If you like to play like that, too, you’ll like this book.
