Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s almost Father’s Day, so let’s take a look at the dads of literature in this week’s collection of fifteen-word book reviews:

1. Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl
A novel full of heart about a boy, his dad, their caravan, and pheasant poaching.

2. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
Gorgeous writing; read this a dozen times as a kid. Tuck himself is heartbreaking.

3. The Chosen by Chaim Potok
Compelling novel with complicated father-son relationships. Love the last scene with Reuven and his father.

4. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
Awesome, touching adventure about siblings who cross the universe to save their father.

5. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Atticus Finch wins the “best fictional dad” award. Stunning novel all around.
