Theo, or Teddy as his mom calls him, has grown up around courtrooms and lawyers. In fact, some of his closest friends are Judges and clerks at the courthouse. Theo’s friends are always calling upon him to help with some legal matter, whether it is getting a beloved pet out of pet jail or finding a lost friend or trying to solve a murder, Theo uses his keen sense of right and wrong to help him with whatever comes his way.
I had never read a John Grisham novel until I picked up the first Theodore Boone. I don’t know if I will read his adult novels or not, but I will continue to read this series and any other he happens to write for kids. All of the students at school that I recommend this book to seem to really enjoy it…both boys and girls.
