Took this home to my sometimes reluctant reader who actually reads very well and enjoys doing it when he doesn't have to. This was a little higher reading level than he usually reads, but I was pretty sure he'd still be able to read it and I was right. It still has pictures in it, which is a draw for younger kids reading at a higher level.
(Genre: Children's Fiction) This was another book that my family listened to on our trip. It was an okay story (very short--just a little over an hour long) but I never fully got into it. It is about a boy who helps his older neighbor test the anti-gravity machine that he has made.

Cal and the Amazing Anti-Gravity Machine by Richard Hamilton, illustrated by Sam Hearn - special fiction book with a humorous take on a person with a nutty professor neighbor who invents an anti-gravity machine. Quite amusing and quick read. Fun with a talking dog as well!
