I’ve learned what paper-hunt is; It’s a game where someone drops paper all the time, and then the other boys have to try and catch him.
I liked it, because I like reading and it was a good book. The only thing that I didn’t really like, was that I already know what was going to happen.
8: Something special about this book is that they made a movie about it as well. The writer of this book, Edith Nesbit, died in the year 1924, and didn’t saw the movie, because it was made in 1967
