Book Review: When Charlie McButton Lost Power by Suzanne Collins - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (04 Oct 2013)
When Charlie McButton Lost Power is an amusing story about a young childs worst nightmare.
What would happen if there was no power, well thats the scenario that Charlie McButton finds himself in. Initially he panics and then he looks for another power source, ie batteries. Of course the only batteries he can find are from his sister.
The story is quite amusing and the clever rhyming sentences used make it a absolute joy to read as it flows nicely. Today we are so wrapped up in the technological world we tend to overlook the simple things in life. Great pictures and a funny story.
