BOOK REVIEW: Lionel's Grand Adventure: Lionel and the Golden Rule by Paul R. Hewlett


Lionel is sick of his brother picking on him and of his mother yelling at him. One day, while cleaning the closet his mother has been after him about, he discovers not only boxes and old clothes, but a lucky charm with more magic than he bargained for. After an unusual encounter with his brother, Lionel knows things are about to change for the better. 

Together, Lionel and his lucky charm are able to stand up to his big brother as well as make Carrie—the cutest girl in his class—notice him. While learning the quirks of his magical charm, Lionel ends up at a casino in Las Vegas, escapes an evil dog, becoming a hero to the other kids, and finds himself playing in the Great Series with his favorite professional baseball team. Will Lionel master the trickster, over-the-top magic, or will it mess things up beyond repair? 

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 8 years, and 16 days until she turns 9!


This book was pretty good. It was very long, but I enjoyed the adventure that Lionel went through. 

When Lionel starts cleaning out his closet after his mom has been yelling at him to do it, he finds a three toed rabbit foot! As Lionel figures out what the foot does, he goes on an adventure of a lifetime. 

There are very funny parts in this book, it made me laugh non-stop. This book has 10 chapters of Lionel's lucky charm journey. 

I don't have a favorite part because the book was awesome! My favorite character is Carrie because she's the only girl in the book and she reminded me of someone! 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 7 to 10.
