I think you should read this book because this is a wonderful book to teach greed and wealth isn't the key to everything, knowledge and courage are.

I like it at the beginning when it explains about the birth of Danny but it is sad when the mum dies. So I am rating it a 4.

You should definitely read this book because it is fun and action-packed. This book is a very adventurous book and is my favourite book ever. Personally I don't like adventurous books but this one has maybe changed my mind about them. This boom has 22 chapters and it took me 2 weeks to finish it. I hope you have fun reading this book.
