Are you looking for an intriguing non-fiction book to read? Do you adore using your iPad? If so, the Freedom for the River Queen eBook by John Davenport is the book for you! eBooks are books that you can download on your iPad, and they are very easy to use. They vary in cost but they are worth it to read. In this eBook there were videos and photographs that go along with the text. I think they are very helpful, especially if it is hard to follow the book.
Freedom for the River Queen illustrates the evolution of German carp and how they have come to live in the South Platte River. It is told from the point of view of carp Queen Cyprinus. She and her court are transported from Luebbinchen, Germany to Washington D.C, right in front of the Washington Monument. All was well until the people were talking about eating her court! On their journey they encounter polluted water, unfriendly Pikeminnow, and a fly fisherman named Barry Reynolds.
I really enjoyed reading this book, but at first I was quite confused. It took me a few reads to fully understand the book, and once you understand you can really follow Queen Cyprinus' adventure. I am not a big fan of non-fiction, but this book was very appealing. There is a lot to learn from this book including history, carp, and fly fishing. Don't know a word or phrase that they mention? Usually the word is bolded or underlined so you can tap it to see what it means. I would recommend this book to anyone seven and older. It might be confusing for younger kids to use the iPad and understand how to read the eBook. There are 13 "pages" and many pictures and videos. Some of the videos include Barry Reynolds trying to catch the Queen and short, three second ones about a person or thing that you may not know about. You can download this booknat the iTunes store. This wonderful book will capture your attention and leave you satisfied!
