Review Childrens Book: Bartholomew and the very big wind by Gary Ross

A soaring bedsheet carries a young boy on three incredible adventures in this compelling debut by acclaimed film director Gary Ross.
Bartholomew Biddle’s life has always been pretty ordinary, but when a huge wind blows past his window one night, he feels the call of adventure — and he can’t resist the urge to grab his bedsheet and catch a ride. Soon he’s soaring far above his little town, heading wherever the wind takes him! After spending time on an island full of pleasure-seeking pirates and at a prep school that boasts a hundred shades of gray, Bart finds himself in a mysterious cove where the wind doesn’t blow. Stuck, Bart is forced to face the fact that his flying days might be over. Will he ever get home again?
i simply fell in love with this book. It is a verse book. Th story is well written and easy to follow. Great for beginner readers or bedtime story. The pictures are drawn very well and colorful. They almost look like oil paintings. Very original. This book would make a great gift for birthdays or holidays for any child that loves stories. The story is original. I recommend this book for any child...
