REVIEW: Billy Cooper's Awesome Nightmare by Penny Estelle

I like stories that not only amuse but also
teach children about historical characters or legends. Billy Cooper’s Awesome Nightmare takes us to an entertaining dream. Billy is a cool, laid back seventh grader that can’t wait for his school week to be over. But this time his teacher decides to give them an extra credit assignment. Each kid needs to draw a name out of a box and do an oral report about that character. Needless to say, Ms. Wickware’s class is not happy. Billy draws William Tell as his subject and of course that only means that he’ll have to research about this William Tell guy on his already busy weekend. But, that night he has an enlightening nightmare (if such thing exists) and he is taken to Tell’s hometown where he’ll not only get to meet him but be a witness of his famous feat.  
Written with humor and in a relatable and engaging style, I am sure that kids will enjoy this short story and will look forward for more stories from this author, where they’ll be learning without realizing. Available on Kindle for only .99 there is absolutely nothing to lose, but a lot to gain!
