The book that hooked me on reading.
Reviewed in the United States on January 27, 2021
I was 11 had been diagnosed as dyslexic and had grown to hate reading. My dad read the "poetry in the bar" scene from this book to me and then stopped reading. I asked dad to please continue. He layed the book on the coffee table, stood up and as he walked out and said you read it. That night, by flashlight, I read it through (struggling all the way). My ability to read grew and my love reading blossomed.
