Imagineer (my 8 year old daughter) just finished a book called, “Uncle Robert’s Secret”. When she was getting close to the last few pages of the book, she said “Mommy, I’m sad this book is almost over.” 🙂
I love reading a book, where you really do not want the story to end. The clear sign of a wonderful story.
Below is my short interview with Imagineer on her thoughts about this book.
Q. Describe this book in a few sentences
A. “Uncle Robert’s Secret” is about a girl named Debbi and her brothers Bob and Sonny. Bob sees a little boy getting hit with a belt by his father, so when he sees them leave he ran in and took him and ran home. He didn’t tell his siblings because they already found out the day their parents left. Ever since then Debbi, Bob and Sonny had a secret they couldn’t tell.
Q. Describe the main characters
A.The main characters were Bob, who was the second oldest who is thirteen with blond hair and blue eyes, Debbi who is eleven was the third oldest and she had brown eyes and blond hair, Sonny who happend to be the youngest was nine and had blue eyes and blond hair like his brother. Bob is daring, Debbi is kind, and Sonny is polite. Those are their names what they look like and their attitude.
Q. What is your most favorite scene in the book?
A. I really like every scene in this book. I like how Wylly Folk St.John put a lot of detail in this book and I would like to send him a letter and tell him how good he was at this story. And I also liked the detailed pictures Frank Aloise drew, like the skull and the boy, so I also would like to write/type him a letter.
Q. What part of the book did you like least?
A.The part I didn’t like was when I finished the book because I’d really like to read on. Because this book is really exciting and adventurous, I almost got scared.
Q. Who is your favorite character and why?
A. I can’t just choose one, they are all so nice, calm, gentle, polite, and interesting.
Q. Why would you recommend this book to your friends?
A. I would recommend this book because of the adventure, the characters, their kindness, and how nice and interesting it was to read. Thats why i’d recommend this book to my friends.
