By Andrew Clements
Room One is about a boy named Ted Hammond. He lives in a tiny town in Nebraska. He loves mystery books and mysteries in general, but his town is very dull. At least, it was very dull before he saw a face in the window of the Anderson farm. That would be normal, but the Andersons moved away a long time ago, and the house is all boarded up. Ted is curious. It’s just like in a mystery book!
One of my favorite characters is Kevin. At Ted’s school they only have one room, Room one. There are four fourth graders, one sixth grader (Ted) and four eighth graders. Kevin is one of the fourth graders. He is really smart and he tries to control the group. He comes up with lots of “great” ideas, and the other fourth graders don’t cooperate. For example, during social studies, he tried to get the group to act out the textbook. The eighth graders find him very amusing.
This book is for 3rd – 5th graders.
I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms.
