The Trojan Horse

Written by Emily Littel • Illustrated by Michael Eagle

Reviewed by Nick C. (age 8)

Hi, my name is Nicholas. I read The Trojan Horse, How the Greeks Won the War. My book is about Troy and Greece at war. Troy and Greece were at war after Troy took something from the Greeks. They built a horse so they could win the war. Then the war happened. The setting was in Troy.

I felt sorry for the Greeks, because they had to pay a toll to go past. I wonder how many times they went back and forth. I have not read a book like this one.

It reminded me about someone fighting, and getting hurt, like in the story. I like battles. I have never read a book like this one.

The lesson is, don't steal.

I recommend you should read this book. The audience would be second graders.
