One thought on “The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp, by Kathi Appelt

  1. I think this is my favorite book in this club so far and I definitely think this is distinguished. I really liked the writing style. The author used old time kind of expressions to add to the bayou setting. The setting was described very well, and the characters were complicated, yet understandable. I also think a wide range of ages could enjoy this book because of its writing style.
