It was an interesting book, but it needed to be more exciting.
Calling Cobber was a realistic fiction story that drew me immediately. The characters seemed like real people. I imagined them in my head. I liked reading about a boy who was older than me and his life. The plot was easy to follow. Cobber's Dad didn't notice Cobber much because he was always at work. It seemed like Cobber and Papa Ben formed a friendship. It was sad when Cobber's best friend, Boolkie, started Sunday School. Cobber didn't get to see Boolkie much after. The most exciting part was when Papa Ben moved in with Cobber and his Dad, and they had a Hanukkah feast. It was a really happy scene, because they were all together. Cobber's Dad then started to pay more attention to him. I was really glad to read that Cobber's Dad changed for the better by the end of the book. I would love to read a sequel of this book to find out what happens as Cobber gets older. One added point: I liked the cover of the book.
This is an amazing book, and props to the person who wrote it. The plot is engaging, and the storyline is easy to follow and fun.
