This book is young reader’s edition. Little boy’s invention changed his life and the life around him.

Even this is a true story, it is almost like a magical story that has been created. This book is just beautiful as it is, and also very mean something. I think this literacy work honors diversity with talking about the hopeful story that happened opposite side of the world. Young middle age readers must read this book.
