    1. Reading THAT BOY RED is like reading about the precocious little boy you love to baby sit the one that leaves you exhausted running around after him, and despairing that he ll ever settle down and mature, but ultimately surprises you when it counts.Red is a young boy living in Depression era Prince Edward Island with his mom, dad, brother and two sisters And occasionally a grannie, to Red s despair Red s older sister is his teacher, his young sister will follow him around, and his brother is the [...]


    2. The tagline says that its Anne of Green Gables meets Owen Skype and I definitely got the Anne of Green Gables feel from it I would describe the story as one with lots of charm, very wholesome and with a homely feel The story is told from Red s point of view and follows him and his family living in rural Prince Edward Island during the height of the Depression Red is your average eleven year old boy in the 1930 s He has chores, helps his Pa out with farm work but also likes to go fishing with fri [...]


    3. I was taken with how much I enjoyed this book I just gobbled it up Once started I couldn t put it down Each chapter is episodic, there is no major plot running through the book, except that of the life of a family living through the Depression on Prince Edward Island The book is held together though by recurring themes in the lives of the characters, such as the love life of the eldest daughter, but the book is very much centred on the main male character and will be of especial appeal to boys T [...]


    4. Simply delightful read Four interconnecting stories about a family in P.E.I during the Depression Gil has such a wonderful knack for dialogue which gives us a real sense of who her characters are Also, wonderful descriptions of the Island Made me want to be there even at winter time The stories are funny and heart warming I could see it as a CBC family hour show Get on that CBC Reluctant readers will appreciate the boyhood antics as well as the short story feel of the book will give them a sense [...]


    5. I loved this book It is so heart warming This awesome book Is about a stubborn boy named Red MacRae and his Ma, Pa older brothers Alex and Mac his younger sister Bunch and his Older sister Ellen who is also the teacher at the local school house It is the depression his family makes a living by making Tobacco caddies for a credit at the market but that are managing much better then most families.His family stands out because they put education ahead of working on the farm Reds shines at wood work [...]


    6. This book is about a boy named Red MacRae and how his life was His family is managing a farm in Prince Edward Island, one of the best.Red was never the best in school, he would rather do woodwork But he can not slack off for his older sister is the teacher and will not have his brother fail but when a terrible accident happened to his father Red and his siblings must step up and finish the tobacco boxes that his father makes Many other problems comes along involving his sisters, outhouses and ae [...]


    7. Much like a boy s version of Anne of Green Gables , That Boy Red is told in a series of vingettes This a gentle and sweet book with some very humourous moments it s easy to see how it was nominated as a Silver Birch fiction contender For my middle schoolers, however, it s a little on the light side, and they were left with questions Overall, they enjoyed it however, it was a little young for their taste A great holiday buy for your Grade 3 6 student


    8. This is essentially the boy version of Anne of Green Gables and takes place on Prince Edward Island as well I enjoyed reading it but some parts didn t flow well the second last chapter takes place in a snowstorm and the last chapter takes place in summer, which is also where the airplane finally makes an appearance Not sure whether or not some chapters or large portions of chapters were edited out or if they were just neglected, but the story definitely requires substance.


    9. I read this as one of the books my son was doing for his local reading link competition It was very enjoyable and reminded me so much of Anne of Green Gables, similar setting PEI and themes Although this is a young person s book, I found it really entertaining and most adults who enjoyed Anne Shirley would enjoy the adventures of Red McRae


    10. I loved it, but I am pretty sure I have never read anything of Gil s that I haven t loved If you haven t read A Group of One, for heaven s sake go and grab it from the library Whether she is writing modern fiction, or in this case, historical, Gil captures the essence of what it means to be Canadian dickenslibrary 201


    11. I really enjoyed ready this book Perfect for the young reader, especially boys, who are difficult to find books written for them One grandson who read the book before me, noticing I might read it, said it was a great book I echo his recommendation.


    12. This is a very sweet and charming read set in Depression Era P.E.I Red is a fun character who does experience growth throughout the book The lack of a real plot, and the episodic nature of the book drove me a little bit nuts, but kids will enjoy reading about his adventures.


    13. What an endearing boy Red is He is not perfect by any means, but he loves his family and they love him He gets into plenty of mischief, but that just adds to the story The only drawback I see is a smattering of off colour words none that are very offensive.






    14. It was a good, quick read I was surprised it was so light hearted for a book set during the depression, but gave a good look at a young boy s life at that time.


    15. I did not like this book very much I thought it was too boreing I can not really recomend this book to anyone because I do not like it.
