This book is about a boy who turns green. His name is Rory Roony. There is a bully in his class named Tommy-Lee Komissky and he has a nut allergy. One day, when he saw a wagon wheel in Rory’s lunchbox he ate it! Then he stopped breathing and turned green! This is a story where two enemies become two friends and help each other to save Christmas.


Can they save Christmas?

Does the green illness spread?

Do they die?

Read the book to find out!

The moral of this story is “The thing that makes you different, is the thing that makes you astounding!”

I like this book because it was exciting and I wanted to read on.

At the beginning I found it difficult to understand what was going on but I soon got into the story and wanted to continue reading it.

I recommend this book to 10+ adventure readers.

I give it 9/10.
