I just realized that Kiddo and I listened to this book in September and I didn't write anything about it at all. Our family took a day trip to Gettysburg and we listened on the ride there and on the ride home.
If you want a summary of the book, check out our review of the movie - they are very similar.
Here are a few quick thoughts on this book ...
- We already watched and really enjoyed the movie so we were excited about the book.
- The book and movie are extremely similar but - of course - the movie changed a few things to make it more exciting. I don't know that they were necessary but they didn't really hurt either. Except for the giant mole thing - that was not in the book and really was rather unnecessary.
- The story is pretty simple and though I enjoyed it I did so more because Kiddo was really into it, and because I'd enjoyed the movie. This is not a series I'd read/listen to on my own, but I'm having fun enjoying it with Kiddo.
