    " I think that is story was good. I lliked it because I find the main character quite funny. My favorite part was when they described him riding a horse and Mr. Weise,my teacher, drew a funny picture. I see a little bit of myself in him because I always creep myself by reading weird/scary stories "

    " Who knew Americans could write. I think I enjoyed the vignettes of English life the most. Some of the stories did not interest me. Even in the telling of a not so interesting story I found joy. "

About the Author
Author Washington Irving

Washinton Irving (1783–1859), American essayist, novelist, and historian, was born in New York to a wealthy merchant. He studied law, but because of his delicate health, his family sent him on a tour of Europe, where he collected material later used in his stories and essays. The first American author to achieve international fame, his literary career served in many ways to consolidate the cultures of the United States and Europe.
