Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer

By John Grisham
Ages 8-12 | Grades 3-7



Why Boys Will Read It:

Like a Nancy Drew for boys, Theo is a nosey crime-obsessed kid (The New York Times) and Grisham's trade-marked fast paced style and talent for writing engrossing thrillers will keep kids turning the page.


What It's About:

In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he's only thirteen years old, Theo Boone thinks he's one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk—and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom—but finds himself in court much sooner than expected.
