Joe's Adventures: Fun on the River by Joseph Dougherty is the story of the author’s youth as he learned to navigate life and tried to find his happiness in the smallest of things. Joe shares some very precious memories of his childhood with readers, starting with a summer when he and his cousin Harold were planning a fishing trip. Living in Florida was fun as long as he had his friends and cousin around him. With very few sources of entertainment, they had to be creative about how to spend the summer and actually have fun. So they decided to make a boat, gathering their supplies. Somehow fishing turns into alligator hunting. They hadn’t told their moms that they were going on a big adventure that might turn out to be more rewarding than they anticipated.
Joe's Adventures: Fun on the River by Joseph Dougherty is a lighthearted, fun and mischievous story of what friends and cousins get up to when they get together. We say boys will be boys, but Harold and Joe get into a world of trouble that even amazed me. The author tells the story of his childhood in a very refreshing manner, he shares pictures and secrets that will make anyone feel nostalgic. He paces his story incredibly well; he introduces new characters at just the right point and overall makes sure that the reader is invested in the story as it goes on. The narrative is smooth yet very nostalgic, the dialogues are imaginative and fun and the overall pace of the story is fast enough to keep it moving but not rushed so that the story loses its meaning. I think this is one of those universal books that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and genders. Entertainment for all!
