    " Did I Ever Lucky You Are? is about an old man sitting on a cactus telling a boy that he shouldn't be sad because his life is a lot easier than some other peoples' lives. One example is a person who has to mow a giant lawn with a tiny lawnmower. It was a good book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sydney | 4/21/2010

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/12/2010
