Ever since Max and his neighborhood friends watched the movie The Great Escape they had not been able to get it out of their minds. The movie was that good. It portrayed the efforts prisoners of war made to escape during the Second World War. This experience greatly impacted these children in that they discussed it with great awe and took every opportunity they had to replicate the scenes that they could remember. Everything was considered fun and games until the children looked at an old sawmill in their neighborhood and decided to build a tunnel in it just like the one they had seen in their movie. The tunnel building came with a lot of stories, challenges, and dangers. Would they survive it? Find out in this exciting and suspense-filled children’s book, The Saga of the Sawmill and Steve McQueen, beautifully written by Michael Murphy.
When you think of a book that is eloquently written, using simple language, and is engaging, funny, and educational, The Saga of the Sawmill and Steve McQueen will readily come to mind. With a first-person narrative, Michael Murphy brings young readers into the story, making them relate to every emotion that follows. I enjoyed that pictures were put in to assist young readers’ imaginations. I also loved the fact that words are highlighted and explained at the end of the story. This gives readers a great opportunity to learn new words and increase their vocabulary. Above all, children can learn vital lessons of obedience and teamwork from this book. I recommend it to children of reading age, as they stand to gain a lot from it.
