In a land far, far away called Wichita there was a magic street called Rutan. This street had a tree-lined tunnel that covered the sky. On this magic street lived a tribe of Indians called the Rutan Indians. These are their stories. I am the last of this tribe.

First, I love the energy captured in these stories. One of the reasons I was eager to review this book was this list, shared by the publisher when they contacted me:

Did you ever...


... dig in the alley for treasure
...jump off the garage roof
...build a tree house
...have Roman candle wars
...make homemade rockets

I had to laugh. I do have a story of jumping off a roof, but this list reminds me of stories I've heard, stories of a different age. When I received the copy, it did not disappoint!!

Oh, my goodness! A laugh out loud memoir of the 'good ol' days'! Mr. Dykes took me back to those times of freedom.

I enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the stories my grandparents would tell me growing up. I liked Mr. Dykes' humor and loved the "lessons learned" at the end of each story. This would be a fun read-a-loud. Then you could discuss not following Mr. Dykes' example. There isn't any language but it is full of boy mischief. I would recommend it for 4th grade and up. You may see my full review on my book blog: www.the-readathon.blogspot.com.

This book was written by my brother, a wonderful storyteller. The laugh out loud stories are real, but from his perspective as a 8 year old, 11 year old boy's view of life and his adventures. The lessons learned section at the end of each story are delightful. Not Aesop Fables, but humor-filled adventures of a boy and his friends growing up in Wichita Kansas.
