What I Did


What I Did by Christopher Wakling

Written through the eyes of a six year old boy, who is well educated and mannered.  He know how to greet someone properly, but like a typical six year old, immediately changes his thoughts and may start talking about dinosaurs.  Also typical to a six year old, not everything a child hears is what they think they hear, for example, a nuclear threat becomes a new clear threat.
What I Did is the story of what happens to Billy when he runs into the street and what happens to those around him, his family, his teachers, etc, and how others view the series of events.
Very well written, even though there are no chapters.  The story flows nicely.  Humor through the eyes of a child and heart felt through the eyes of adults.  A must read for all.
