Fifth grade book review  Feb 25, 2010
This book is about slaves that are hiding in a barn. Tommy came home from church , and he fed the horses He heard a noise in the barn and went to see what it was. A man named Jeff popped out of the hay, and Tommy fell off the top of the barn. He fell in the hay.Jeff and his family came out of the barn, and Jeff had an axe and waved it in the air. Jeff's wife said that Tommy was just a little boy. (Chance)

Tommy found three people and the people talk to him and his dad came in the barn. They talk to them and they said we ran away from the slave owners. They took them to the underground railroad. (Shawn)
 
The Drinking Gourd  Mar 28, 2009
While studying Black History Month this book is amazing with the rich illustrations and the historical facts. The children loved when I read it to them.
 
Good  Apr 18, 2003
I liked this book. It was one of my favorite books. It was a good thing they hid in the hay. They had to go to the under ground railroad. The under ground is a secret group of people who believe slavery is wicked. We need to obey all laws this book is a bout history.
 
Two different Worlds  May 5, 2000
This tale of the underground railroad told from the perspective of young, mischievious Tommy Fuller, blends history with a compelling adventure story. Tommy discovers a runaway slave family hiding in his father's barn. Little Jeff is Tommy's age but has had a very different life as a Southern child of slavery. The adventure is how Tommy and his father, Deacon Fuller, help this family escape to Canada and freedom. Includes a simple discussion between Tommy and his father about the fact that they have broken a law and that sometimes laws cannot be obeyed.
