In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson illustration will appear here.

I chose this book because my teacher told me to. I did like the cover because it looked interesting.

There was a girl named Bandit. She moved from China to the San Francisco Bay area. My favorite parts were stickball and stoopball. I like stickball because it is the same thing as baseball. I like stoopball because it is similar to handball. You play stoopball by throwing a ball on the steps and saying a number. The person on the other team whose number is called has to catch the ball to make a point for his team. If he misses the ball, no point is scored. He has to throw the ball against the stairs.

I would recommend this book to you because it is a great book for kids and adults. You will probably enjoy this book because it is a very interesting book. You will probably think the book is interesting after you read the whole book. I think this book will be the best book you read.
