It a reader was enthralled with Hatchet, they will like this! The end was exciting, but it ended pretty ubruptly. The author of this book provided free copies of the book to have their book reviewed by a professional reviewer.
The book has amazing aspects but it didn't evolve fully enough. I would recommend this book to any-aged reader but there are others ahead in the queue if your reading time is limited.

Septuagenarian Albert Least-Weasel still clings to the old ways he has known all his life. During the storm he and his dog, Tucker, are washed towards one of the many islands along the Alaskan coast.
Other editions. Despite his best efforts, he is unable to generate much concern for the old man from his uncles, and cultural pride and the unwillingness to disrespect his elders prevents him from setting out on a search until his grandmother asks him to find her husband.
I think Seth got it off easy though because he had his dog as his companion for the whole time. Together, they make it onto the island where at least for the moment they are safe.
Check out this video and the unusual gifts offered. He is obviously glad to have his dog with him, otherwise he would be totally alone. He compared himself to Robinson Crusoe, a sixteen-year old teen who washed up with his dog on an island with only the provisions he had on his back.
Seth's mom was killed in a car accident about a year ago. Apr 26, 2014 Mary Beth rated it liked it.
View 1 comment. The story rolls along, however I have to confess that I ended up a little puzzled... The main idea of the book is that people claim some things are very easy, when they either have never done it before, or have and can back their claim, and some things are easier said than done.
