I thought the book was so wonderful, that Im going to do my book report on it.

It was a great and interesting book,like most of sharon creeches books.I also liked it because it had a lot of adventure.

This book was great

Hey i like it it was interesting. The wanderer way veryyyy good and it wasint Jacked up wanna be getto dude.

This book was very adventures and how I like it. And it showed that girls can do what boys can. I also really enjoyed the bomphie story's. I eally liked Cody for a charachter he seemed to have 2 diffrent persanality's one: can act stupid but funny two:can be serious and get to work when is needed to. I really enjoyed this book also because it is really belivible, like it doesn't have fantisy's of stuff that wouldn't happen. I think you should read this book if u liek to learn stuff about the sea.

Believe it or not but i can totally relate to this character, WE BOTH HAVE THE SAME NAMES!!!! Anyways, she is JUST like me and i absolutally LOVE the book. YOU HAVE TO READ IT! I love it.. if I were to rate it 1-5 i would rate it 100! thanx!!

This book was totally awsome! I think that its cool about Sophie and how she visits "Bompie" for the first time!!! Thank you SOOOOO much Sharon Creech for writing this book!!!!!!!
