It had all of the beginnings of a very ordinary event. Students doing pranks, getting in trouble and being assigned a daunting project. Not very exciting, right? Only this is no ordinary book. In fact, the prologue itself declares that it is NOT the most boring book in the world, but rather a book about the most boring book in the world. How many times have students been assigned books to read and declared that it was boring? What started out as proving that The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper is the most boring book in the world, turned out to be oh so much more! The book started a little slow as it sets the reader up for what is to come later in the book. I found myself on the edge of my seat reading the last half of the book and cheering toward the end of the story. This is a book that I think both boys and girls will like but you have to get through 77 pages first. So don't quit on the book too soon and you'll be glad you stuck it out!
