“We are loving this book! My 10 year old son, who generally is not a fan of our read aloud time, looks forward to it with this book! He actually said, “Mom, I really like this book!” Thank you Lamplighter for publishing books that are full of people and characters I’m not afraid of my kids emulating!” — Valerie Hunt of Campbellsville, Kentucky

“Well written. Exciting stories of boys with every kind of disadvantage in life who overcame to accomplish great things for the world.  Would recommend this as reading for young or old but especially for young boys.” — Boyd Sellers of Avon, Indiana
