All thanks to one little word, Jack Rabbit's life will never be the same. After losing to the tortoise in that oh so embarrassing race, Jack decides he wants to become a star. After searching for a way to become famous, Jack befriends a crow that tells him that he knows where Jack can fulfill his dreams. The crow takes Jack to Magicland where they meet the Magic Man. The Magic Man gives Jack an offer to become the star he wanted to be, but it will cost him a small price. Jack becomes a star when performing for the Magic Man, but is what he had to give to become that star worth it?

I think the author of Come Back Jack put in a lot of time and thought to create this wonderful book. I really enjoyed this book, but when I got to the last few chapters the book fell flat. The ending was pretty boring and the fighting scenes were continued way too long. I think the author could have made this book better by shortening the length of the fighting scenes and that he should have added more details to the ending to make it more interesting. There are cute, sometimes silly illustrations that were drawn by Heather Shellenberger throughout the book. I recommend this book for ages eight to twelve.

Dangerous Neighbors, a novel about 1876 Philadelphia and the Centennial, was deeply researched and captures an extraordinary period in American history. I created a teacher's guide that offers an in-depth look at the planning of the Centennial, the nature of newspaper reporting, the role of women organizers, and the vanishing of city icons. Readings are suggested. Individual and team exercises are offered. A book discussion guide is included. And there are essay writing exercises for those who are working on their own writing craft.
