This was a really interesting adaptation of the history of Levi Strauss. I think young boys will get a kick out of the jokes and language the author uses, and all of the exaggerated facts. I do think the truth-stretching Johnston employs could be confusing and/or annoying if you don't preface the book with an explanation that it didn't really happen this way. I did really like that Levi "just wanted to sew". I think it shows that it's ok for boys to like sewing and making things as well as girls.
