My children ages 11, 9 and 7 love this book. I read it the night before we go pumpkin picking and usually a couple of times during the year randomly. It really has a great story to tell. I would recommend every child should read it at least once.

About the author (2010)

Susan Boros, with her husband, has made a life of devotion to their two sons, Alex and Jon. They leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of their children's happiness. Their sons have had the opportunity to travel to many destinations. Each has been given the tools to pursue their dreams and talents in many ways. They boys have shown many diverse interests, from sports to the arts. There is no doubt that Susan's family can share many stories, humorous or otherwise, from their lives spent together.God could not have chosen a better mother for Alex and Jon than Susan. She is witty, determined, and very opened minded. Unlike many women, Susan loves sports - so she is very active in her sons' athletic pursuits. Besides getting them involved in local leagues, they travel to stadiums all over the country to see different baseball and football teams. Susan is also very active in her local community and school system. She is more aware than the average town citizen of local issues - many of which affect her family directly.Susan grew up in a somewhat broken family, moving from place to place, around the country. She stayed close with her mother and remained determined to build her own life. She has held various technical-related jobs. She is now the communications specialist for a large public school system. Susan's mother passed away after a three year battle with ovarian cancer. Her mother was a writer as well, putting together stories of her family - pas and present. She published two books based on Susan's grandparents who met just prior to World Warr II, and whose marriage was challenged by distance and danger, once her grandfather enlisted in the army. Susan continues that tradition, with witty stories drawn from her family experiences.
