Boomtown is the home of Chang's Famous Fireworks factory, the Slush Olympics, the "Fighting Slugs" footballteam, rocket reindeer, and flying barber chairs. Boomtown is a humorous tall tale about a fictional town and its odd residents, written to capture the attention and inspire the imagination of intermediate readers. It's a fun read, however, underneath the humorous veneer, Boomtown asks and answers the question, "What does a healthy communitylook like?"  The main characters struggle as they learn to trust theirneighbors.
