The Sign of the Beaver

Book Review
The Sign of the Beaver
Elizabeth George Speare

Matt and his father have finally finished building their new cabin and now Matt’s father must go back to fetch his Mother and sister. Matt must stay home and take care of the cabin while his father is gone and he will come across many dangers including meeting up with a bandit, being attacked by a bear and being chased by a cluster of angry bees.
Then he meets the Indians. At first it’s just Matt trying to teach the sullen Attean to read and write, but soon Matt and Attean have formed a true friendship, but can it last?
Soon Matt will have to make a huge decision about staying true to his friend, or his family.
I enjoyed this fantastic Newberry Honor book because it keeps you enthralled throughout the whole book, waiting for what will happen next. An exciting story for ages 10+.
