I spoke to 4th and 5th graders at the Mather School in Dorchester, MA. (It's the first tax-supported public elementary school in the U.S.)
All of the students had read The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis.
We had some great discussions about the book: their favorite parts, the character they liked best and why, any connections they had, etc.
