    When I read this book at a much younger age, I adored it. Let's be real, I probably had an unrealistic crush on the fictional Attean. Tall, dark, handsome, strong, intelligent, good with hands... ;)

    I thought the Sign of the Beaver was a five star book because there was so much action that made you wonder will he make it or something else. We read this book during class.
