The Pushcart War

Author: Jean Merril
Reviewer's Age: Grade 7

The Pushcart War is a book about a war, if that's what you choose to call it. The trucks in New York City are multiplying and taking over. The poor pushcart peddlers will be out of jobs if they don't do something quick. I wouldn't say that there was one main character in this book. This book was interesting so that I wouldn't put it down. I always wanted to see what the pushcart peddlers would think to do next. I thought they were very clever.
