I am loving this book! It is so unique in that there are two stories being told simultaneously. I enjoy how one is with words and the other with pictures. This book is really making me think and use all of the reading strategies we've learned this year. I can't wait to finish and see if our thinking is correct: that somehow Ben and the girl in the graphic story (story in pictures) are connected. If you like being drawn into the story you are reading and like being a reading detective, than you will love this story full of adventure, suspense, and characters that seem so real!
