BOOK NAME: Oggie Cooder
AUTHOR: Sarah Weeks
This book is all about Oggie Cooder. He is a boy who becomes famous because of his charving – that means carving objects out of cheese by biting off small pieces with your teeth. Oggie charves out the shapes of different states like Texas and Florida in pieces of American cheese, which doesn’t have holes in it like Swiss. The cheese can’t be too hot or too cold for good charving. If it’s too hot, it will melt. If it’s too cold, it will break into pieces.
Oggie used to charve to stay calm, but when the owners of Hidden Talents, a talent place, sees how good Oggie is at charving, he starts to do it for money. But it all gets too tough for him so he quits and goes back to his old life.
I give Oggie Cooder a five out of five. This is the best book I’ve read so far because I think charving is so cool. I haven’t tried it yet because we don’t have big enough pieces of cheese in our house. Also, when we do have cheese, Mom keeps it in the fridge and it would be too cold. Some day I’m going to charve.
