Synopsis about Poppa's Present

Poppa’s Present
By Adrienne Frater

This book is set at Poppa’s house. Poppa is turning 70 so they are throwing a party for him.  The family is also trying to decide who will buy the present for Poppa and what they are going to get him. Sam gets picked and he goes off and tries to decide what to get him. It takes one whole week for Sam to decide but finally he has the perfect thing. If you want to find out what Sam got Poppa then read the book!

A strength of this book would be that I found exciting is that when Sam bought Poppa the gift he didn’t tell the reader what he had bought Poppa. The reader only found out at the end when Poppa actually unwrapped the present. I think that made the book more exciting to read, and it made you really want too keep reading. A weakness of this book is that when he opened the present and got out the leatherman he didn’t look that happy so I thought he could at least show smile and say thank you.

I can understand how Poppa felt when he opened the present and got the leatherman. He wasn’t smiling because he didn’t know what it was and didn’t really want it.
