This book has nothing to do with the death of a child's parent as the description says. The title suggest he has an adventure, but all it is about is a kid who goes to school and who does not listen. The story does not flow well at all. It jumps from on thing to another. There is no cohesion. I do not recommend it. I was not impressed with illustrations either. My kids did not like it at all. Don't waste your money or time.
