  • Book Summary:

    Boys will be boys and boys require reading books that tickle their funny bones. Your boys will split their sides laughing and learn valuable lessons to as they read about Martin's escapades. Martin is on punishment for the 3 day holiday weekend and they've taken away every electronic device he owns. Stuck in his room, Martin has 3 long days to entertain himself and think about his crime.


    The Adventures of Martin Tyrone Sanchez Dupree is a story many children will be able to relate to. When becoming grounded for getting into a fight, Martin's parents take all the electronics out of his room.That left Granny's books that she had given him to read about African-American inventors. But will Martin find solace and wisdom in those books?

    Nowadays children are glued to the TV, gameboys and the like. Sometimes they forget that entertainment can also come from books. The author did a terrific job tying in this information into her story. The story is also told as if the character is talking right to the reader, some children will enjoy reading the story from that direction as if they were having a chat from a friend. The only quibble is that the story doesn't mention if the punishment worked and if Martin learned his lesson about not getting into trouble at school. Other than that, some children from the ages of 10 and up will enjoy Martin's discovery and be able to relate to his plight, learning a valuable lesson in the process.

    1. This story sounds interesting.
      For young people, reading books is essential.
      Sadly, in this Google-age, for parents - seems like a lost war.
