MVP*: Magellan Voyage Project by Douglas Evans is a 2008 Rebecca Caudill nominee that was very clever and action packed. Adam Story is dared to the be the first boy to go around the world in 40 days, and he takes the challenge. This book is a fast paced, adventurous trip, with a mystery thrown in too. All of the word play was hilarious! Even though girls would like this, it’s definitely a great recommendation for boys. Do you think it will win the Caudill Award this year?
