This is the tale of young Abe Lincoln and his best childhood friend. The author interrupts the story to consult with the illustrator, and the reader is directly addressed during the story. These devices make the book appropriate for elementary to early middle school readers. The tale celebrates acts that impact history, whether or not you become the famous one. It also highlights friendship.
