Review: This is one of my favorite all time read alouds. I love the characters, especially the two boys Kenny and Byron. Byron is always seeming to get into trouble. Christopher Paul Curtis has written a book that I truly treasure. It's vivid vocabulary and sometimes downright funny chapter titles makes this one book not to be missed.
