Davon began writing at a very young age. Davon started writing at the age of seven. Back then, he was so in love with his favorite shows that he wanted to immerse himself in those adventures that he watched on television.

Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock travels across the United States of America in Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock: The Travel to Washington by Davon Miller. Little Ricky hears the doorbell and, on opening the door, he is given a huge package. Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock opens the heavy package and to his surprise finds a black and white puppy, an orange kitten, a green parrot, and a gray baby elephant inside. The animals step out of the box and start going wild. It is time to take the animals to their home. Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock boards the train and readers get to see them traveling across the U.S.A. before they reach Washington D.C. by rail, road, and foot.

The story takes readers on an exciting journey through different states of the U.S.A. and introduces them to famous landmarks. I like the concept of helping children learn about the different states in the U.S.A. through this interesting journey along with Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock and the animals. The crayon sketches are wonderful and they make the story very appealing to children and will help them to connect better with the author’s words and concept. The sketches also make the landmarks palpable to readers and they become familiar with Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, and other famous landmarks easily. It is a good story to help children learn about the landmarks and states of the U.S.A. in an engaging and fun way. The book is full of surprises for young readers and it is a good story that can be used in classrooms for interactive learning sessions.
