  1. I liked the list of western words in the back. Some were funny. The book was kinda boring even though there was a lot of bad guys the main character had to get.

  2. I read the book Pop. It was about someone that tried to make gum. He made bubblegum. Then he sold it at a candy store. It was the day after Christmas and all kid that went to the candy store got to try it first. All the kids loved it. It gives you fact about bubblegum. It was a good book.
