Review: Can you imagine rocks that could walk or even move? Do you like short and entertaining stories? Then The Day the Stones Walked by T.A Barron is a book for you! The day the Stones Walked is a book about a young a young Native American boy in Hawaii. His name is Pico. His father has told him stories about stones walking but Pico doesn't believe his father. One day a great wave comes by and wipes out Pico. Will he ever get back to shore? Are there really rocks that can walk?

I recommend this to readers who are around the age of 8-10 years old. The Day The Stones Walked is an entertaining story. T.A Barron is one of my personal favorite authors for this type of genre. I'd say my favorite part is when the stone saves Pico from drowning after being wiped out by the ÒGreat WaveÓ. The overall plot of the story is well developed along with the characters they are well described. T.A Barron has made a lot of other books for example the Merlin series, The Hero's Trail, and Child of the Dark Prophecy to name just a few. I personally give this book a rating of 7 out of 10. Overall this book is great! The story is very entertaining. I really enjoyed it, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
