Hill of Fire

Written by Thomas P. Lewis

Reviewed by Illiana S. (age 9)

This book is about a farmer who lived in Mexico. He was never happy because he thought that nothing ever happened in his village. One day when the farmer was in his field plowing the earth, the plow suddenly stopped, It sank into the earth and it went down and down into a little hole. That?s when everything changed for the farmer. A new volcano was born.

I liked this book because this story happened in Mexico where my family lives. This book has fiction parts and parts that are real.

I recommend this book because it shows a little bit about another culture.
