A review by Caleb, age 9 Feb 15, 2007
The Sugar Creek Gang is a group of kids that have many adventures and all of them have nicknames. First there's Bill then Poetry who knows about 100 poems. Then there's Circus who is very acrobatic. Next is Dragonfly who is always seeing things before everyone else. The littlest in the gang is little Jim. And the leader is big Jim. The Sugar Creek Gang find a cave that they plan to sleep in. Dragonfly is afraid that there are ghosts in the cave. Poetry plans to scare everyone. Bill helps Poetry with his plan. Everyone gets scared. They find a secret passage in the cave that leads to someone's house that they know.
In 1925 the author, Paul Hutchens, was made a Baptist minister. Only a few years into his career, Hutchens was forced out of the ministry when he was told he had a terrible disease called Tuberculosis. Though his time as an evangelist was cut short, Paul Hutchens guessed that he had preached 1,777 sermons and saw 2,500 people become Christians. While he was getting better from his sickness, he tried writing and soon found out that he was good at it.
I'm amazed and fascinated at how the Sugar Creek Gang found the secret passage. I was curious about what was going to happen after they slept in the cave. I was interested at how old man Paddler came to the cave through the secret passage. There are many things to be excited about in this book cause this book is written about how a boys life can be. This is an astounding story. I think it is awesome.
I think you should read this book because it shows how a boy's life can be. The Sugar Creek Gang is a series of books about some kid's who live a very adventurous life. They all have some special talent and I appreciate that.
