A Great Read

The best book I've read all year is The Cook Camp by Gary Paulsen. The reason I like this book the most is because it puts in a lot of detail about what's going on, and the author makes it where it feels like you're there. One reason why you should read this book is it has a lot of details. Another reason you should read this book is it seems so real. The final reason is I know you'll like it. Well, have fun reading this awesome book.

The Cookcamp

The Cookcamp is a wonderful book. The author of this book is Gary Paulsen. I think he is a fantastic writer. I usually don’t read much but his books are great. The Cookcamp is a short but a great book. The Cookcamp was a very interesting story it kept my attention throughout the whole book. The boy in the book was always being mischievous. He always wanted to be with the guys. I really thought this was good. It was not hard to understand, and easy to read. If you are ever searching for a book to get some quick points off of read The Cookcamp.

The Cookcamp

The Cookcamp is a great book by Gary Paulsen. The main idea is a little boy goes to spend the summer with his grandma. My favorit part is when the little boy gets a pair of bibs, a hat, and a pocket knife. I really didn't like the way he was left at the train station. This book really inspired me to read more Gary Paulsen books like Dogsong, The Rifle, Hatchet, Brians Winter,and Voige of the Frog. I would recommend this book for boys that like the outdoors. I'm not going to tell you too much about this book because if you want to know the rest, buy it or check it out at your public libary.
