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.

Love your fifteen word reviews. What a great idea. Thanks, Annie, as usual. : )
Thanks so much, Cassie! 🙂
I have read all five. To Kill A Mockingbird is by far my favorite, much better to read than to watch. Gregory Peck made a great Atticus Finch, however.
Gregory Peck was so stellar. I hope they never remake TKaM because no one could do compare.
