I would read more books by this author.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

I liked this book because Tris succeeded on his donut stand and he made his own donuts. It taught me the importance of succeeding and when you fail you can learn from those mistakes and you can try something new for example, Tris used his brain-power and thought if he filled the donuts with mashed potatoes it would taste the same but better in two ways.

Great book!

I liked the part when Tristan made the chocolate cream doughnuts because I learned that if you replace some of the flour with mashed potatoes it makes the doughnuts lighter and I LOVE doughnuts. :)

Fun read. I had a great time reading this book. What made it more fun is that after reading it my family went out for a yummy treat....doughnuts of course!! It was entertaining. I liked the cover. I liked the idea of the weird purple house in a smaller town that Tristan was use to. I am from the city but live in a family neighborhood so I have the best of both worlds. Knowing that he had to adjust to something different was fun to read.

when the main character of this book Tristan moves away from New York to Petersville it seems the town is gray and boring but all that changes when Tristan finds out about the towns life changing doughnuts.the only problem is ever since they made the front cover of the news paper people come from miles away just to try a chocolate cream doughnut from the general store and the owner Winnie says its to much work. ever since she stopped making them.now its Tristan's mission to bring the doughnuts back to petersville but along the way he finds out that he may have bitten off more than he can chew read the book to find out what happens.

This book is about a boy named Tristan who moves from big, busy, New York City to small Petersville in the middle of nowhere. When Tristan's parents tell him to do a project he gets an idea that involves doughnuts, hard work, and a whole lot of fun!

I loved The Doughnut Fix because many kids can relate to it. Whether you've run a lemonade stand in the summer or you've even tried to run an entire business, like Tristan in this book, you’ll enjoy this book a lot!

I recommend this book to kids who have tried to run a business or something of the sort, if they like baking, or if they just LOVE DOUGHNUTS!!! (I mean, who doesn’t?)
