Being a huge history buff, I loved this book. There are no words. The illustrations show the evolution and history of this boy's hometown with the help of a magic newspaper. A great book to use to discuss the growth and change in cities and towns as well as just talking with your children. Not for young ones though, they will not get it.

Thanks to Netgalley and Capstone for the opportunity to "read" and review this title. ( )

The boy is in color for current day pages and the history of his town is in black and white. The idea of the newspaper taking him on a historical tour of his hometown is brilliant.

CC: postmodernism, a great piece for students to dictate the story in their words
