My side of the Mountain: a review by Cece07

Title: My Side of the Mountain
Author: Jean Craighead George
Format: paperback
Price: 6.99

This is Sam. He ran away from home, proving to his Dad that he can survive in the wild. He was in search of the Gribley Farm, in the Catskill Mountains. He traveled with a penknife, a coil of rope, a bus ticket, and $40. He also lives in a hollowed out tree--it's HUGE!!! Plus he ends up learning these cool survival skills. Like... identifying plants and animals, making fish hooks out of wood, and making killer acorn pancakes!!! He has encounters along that way, and a HUGE surprise at the end. With tons of challenges along the way you should see what happens next. Will he end up sick, or losing his tree??? Find out!!

Rating; 4.5 chocolate bars
Cover thoughts: it fits really well!!
Appropriateness: fairy tale princess... It is basically about nature and survival.
