Paulsen is almost always a sure bet. I picked this up on a trip into my classroom realizing I had purchased it but never read it. I read the flap and just knew that one of my fourth graders from last year (who I will likely have again in fifth this year) would fall in love with this book. Sure enough he stumbled up to my chair at the pool just the other day to ask me what I was reading.

I loved how Samuel is isolated at the beginning of this book. I enjoyed feeling like I was in his head looking at the woods and trying to decide where to go and how to proceed. I loved the articles between chapters giving some background on the war. What an interesting and fabulous book.
