My Mom has been reading us this story at nightime. We usually read 2-4 chapters. The book is about a little boy named Colton. At the beginning, he dosen't want to hold Rosie, a big Spider at the Petting Zoo. Later, he can't stop throwing up. He has to go through surgery because he had the place inside him that holds all the Poison in him exploded. Then he said that he left his body and went to Heaven. Then he said to his dad, "Hey Mommy!" Colton's Mom says "Yes?" "Did you know that Daddy was given the job to be a Pastor by Jesus?" asked Colton. And that was true. There were also two funny parts-One of them was when a man died, and at the church asked, "Daddy, did the guy have Jesus in his heart? HE HAD TO!HE HAD TO or else he wouldn't go to Heaven!!!" The other silly part is when Colton's Mom had a Baby, it died inside her. She died before Colton was born. And Colton said "Hey Mommy! I have two sisters! One died inside you, remember?" After he dropped that Bomb, his Mom was Crying. It's one of the greatest books ever!!! You ought to read it because it's the best book I've ever heard in my whole entire life. But still, it is a really long, long book that's still awesome!
