Dante was asked by American Mensa to review a book for Amazon. She is a avid and prolific reader so doing a review as a natural for her. Here is her review:

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bliss of the Gift of Imagination, July 20, 2012
By Young Mensan BookParadeSee all my reviews This review is from: The Unforgotten Coat (Hardcover)
“The Unforgotten Coat” by Frank Cottrell Boyce is an unforgettable story of two mysterious brothers who befriend a girl (Julie) and appoint her as their “good guide.” The brothers pretend they believe they are being chased by a demon. There may not be a real demon, but they are being chased. Julie learns more about the tricky brothers’ background and finds the true meaning of fear.

These “Mongolian” brothers show Julie the bliss of having the gift of imagination. As an adult, she pieces together parts of their story and figures out what was really happening from the pictures to the coats to the demon. Julie and the brothers give you laughs and you, the reader, can really compare yourself to these moments of fun.
“The Unforgotten Coat” can be suitable for adults, teens and kids alike. I personally wouldn’t suggest it for anybody under 6 because of the way the humor is being shown. It only slightly surfaces and could be hard for younger readers to understand. Also, the meaning and importance of the plot can be hard to grasp. Kids can probably relate to the conveyed feelings of the characters better though.

This book has some very interesting parts. My personal favorite parts are mostly the funny moments. I enjoyed that the author used the simile “it was like watching high tension tennis.” The new students were contradicting the teacher and the classmates were looking back and forth, back and forth as if following the ball. I also thought it was especially funny when Julie found “Mongolia” was just pictures of Bootle angled and set up so it gave the illusion of being a certain way. Finally, the last picture reached my heart with the brothers thanking her for being their good guide. This book is definitely specially because in total it teaches you that if you use your imagination, you can convince yourself its one thing. This can make you mentally stronger.

This story should be read by ages 8-800 because of the subtle humor. Younger kids might understand half of it. Also, the book’s importance could be irrelevant to them. They won’t be able understand the fear of these people. This book would be 5 stars because it gives perspective mystery, and is thought provoking. I would recommend this to any reading lovers.

Review by Young Mensan Dante P., age 10 Northern New Jersey Mensa

Read Dante's short story Hunter Hunted

Home of the smallest and tiniest Chinese Cresteds & the sweetest teddy bear faced Mi Ki puppies.

I don’t know everything,

I don’t know how it rolls,

So show me how I should be,

Show me how it goes.

You may not be my teacher,

Or my parents either,

but show me, show me, show me,

Show me how it goes.”

Dante P.

Tim and I thank everyone who have so generously contributed to our children’s lives with the goal of shaping compassionate human beings. Thank you to all the teachers, coaches and people who see their potential  and inner beauty. Just like our puppies, our goal for our human children is for them to be joyful and contributing members of society, to give more than they receive.
