A Book Review by Maxine: Off Like the Wind

       Mike Spradlin just wrote a new kids book about the Pony Express. Me and my mom read it together. It was a really good book. It was a picture book; the title was Off Like the Wind.  Me and my mom both really liked it. I learned how important the pony express was. I learned that it was dangerous for the riders, I didn't know that at first.

     Now, I'm not going to go into all the details, but read it and you might be surprised about how hard it was to communicate with people who live far away. Now we can send e-mails and talk on the phone.  The e-mails you send takes seconds to get to places like Seattle.  Before the Pony expess it took them months. Then, the Pony Express got it down to just a week.  Now, it takes just seconds!

I think you should read the book.  I mean you HAVE to read it.  I LOVE this book!
       SR-E-A-D  his new book Off Like the Wind now!

Read it!

P.S. There is even something about my favorite president A. Lincoln in this book.

I was exited to watch this movie with my mom and stay up untill 10:00.  This movie is true and Fake.  Insted of Dr. Pfeffer (dentist who came to live with the Franks) he was called by another name and the same with the VanPellses.  I have some qestions still, so here they are:(if you know the answers tell me them in the comments)

1.What was Dr. Pfeffers name in the story?
2.In the story, why does Anne be mean to her mother?
3.Did Dr. peffer share a room with Anne or not?
                    and four
Did she like Peter VanPeles?

And later in another blog I will tell you what I think the awnsers are.

So later tonight watch Masterpiece Classic on @ 8:00 or 9:00 on PBS

    PS I'm pretty sure that this is going to be on but it might not
