My favorite part is when Wiley tricks the Hairy Man and the Hairy Man turns into a possum! Wiley climbs trees to get away from the Hairy Man. My favorite activity is to climb trees! Once, my sister was chasing me and I climbed up a tree.
I really like this book because the illustrations are good and the pictures match the words. I like the picture of the Hairy Man in the form of a possum. I like the word ?conjure?, it means magic. The dictionary says that suspense means ?when a story builds to a high point?. What?s going to happen next? Is Wiley going to get eaten? This book is full of suspense.
This book is not like any other book I read before! Do you like American folktales? If you do, I recommend this book to you.
