Fagan, Cary. Danny, Who Fell in a Hole. 2013, House of Anansi.
This story is about a boy named Danny who runs away from home because his parents are splitting up to pursue careers. Danny falls into a hole at a construction site, meets his best animal friend, mole, and is saved at the end of the book.
Cary Fagan writes in a way that engages the readers. The style provides real life situations and fictional animal talkers that keep the readers interested and wanting to find out more. It is very humorous, interesting, and moving.
The illustrations are appropriate for readers ages 12 to 15 to understand what the author is "drawing" with the writing. The illustrations also confirm what the author meant by the writing.
I enjoyed reading this book! I would recommend this book to other kids who enjoy fictional, interesting stories. This was a fun book to read in my free time and I would love to pass it on.
