“The Chalk Box Kid” is a book that I recently read. The main character moved to a town and it is about him adjusting. The main character is a boy and his name is Gregory. He is nine years old. The reason he has to move to a new neighborhood is because his family doesn’t have a lot of money and his dad loses his job.
He encounters difficulties at his school at first. Kids at school were mean to him. Gregory finds a secret place in an old, burned chalk factory. He finds some chalk. On the dark walls, he can draw anything. What will he draw first?
I loved this book! This book is my kind of thing. It’s about a boy my age. Well, right now he’s my age. I like to draw like he does.
