If anyone wants a GREAT BOOK about our area of maine,I suggest reading ( THE TOWN THAT WENT TO SEA) It is the history of Thomaston Maine and the georges river valley ,where a lot of us live and work. You will discover a lot of your own family names of your forefathers who built hundreds of ships here and sailed to many distant places.There is no fantasy in this book BUT REAL !!! danger, real excitement,hardships and,success of the people who came before us.

Excellent choices, boys and girls, and it's wonderful to know that you are reading books.

When I was your age (I'm 80!) my favorite book was "Redcoat, the Phantom Fox" by Clarence Hawkes. I'll bet the wonderful Rockland Public Library and the Camden Public Library have copies of it.  Start to read it and you won't be able to put it down. Really a good read.
