The Paperboy by Dav PilkeyThis book encourages me to stay in bed. We see that early morning time itís still dark and the paperboy gets up out of bed and starts work. It looks brutal. He gets home when the sun is coming up and goes back to bed for some Ďzís.
Dav does a wonderful job at showing what itís like in the early morning playing with light and shadow and that feeling of the cold and wanting to be in bed. Where I grew up, they had a delivery van that brought the papers to each house. There was no paper boy or girl. I donít think they have one in Baltimore either. I think this is mostly a bygone era job. Still, itís nice to see their experience. I also like that the boyís dog went with him everywhere. Itís good he had a companion in this early morning endeavor. Itís a real job they had. I guess the plus side of it is that you get to see the sun come up each day.
The nephew is up early every morning, so I could see him doing this rather easily when he gets older, if that job existed. He was shocked that the boy got to go do this all on his own. They let him go alone? He wouldnít want to do something alone like this. He gave this 2 stars. The niece thought this was interesting. She thought it looked lonely also. She gave this 3 stars.
