The Pain and the Great One

Book Review: The Pain and the Great One

Reviewed by Maximo Martinez, 3rd Grade and his mother, Thea Falzarine

The November theme is about Nourishment which made me think of Thanksgiving and family. This book is about a brother and sister with their own opinions of each other. They each feel their parents love the other one more. But is that really true? My favorite part of the book is when the Pain breaks the block city with his truck. The Great One was so mad at him! He was really just trying to have fun with his sister.


This book is related to my own life and other kids too. Having a big sister for family makes my heart race! She helps me to exercise by chasing me around when she’s mad or racing me on bikes. My life is so fun with The Great One.
