Synopsis

Avoid Being a Pony Express Rider! by Tom Ratliff

Get ready...It's 1860, and a new mail company is looking for riders. It's tough work, but well paid. Do you have what it takes to be a Pony Express Rider? You are a sixteen-year-old boy, the son of a pioneer family living in Kansas Territory. In the spring of 1860, you read an ad for a direct mail delivery service that will connect the eastern United States with California. How do you survive the 1,966 miles of the Pony Express? Humourous cartoon-style illustrations and speech bubbles bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
