  Great Indian Princess Story
Noah (age 8) of Oregon, 5/24/2017
From the cover, this doesn't look like a super good book, but when you read it, it is really fun! Pocahontas is an Indian Princess born to Powhatan. Powhatan was a very cruel and ugly man, But, Pocahontas was very lovely and sweet. All of the other girls weren't allowed to play, but she was allowed to play because she was the chief's daughter. Every morning, after she went down to take a bath, she would play with the boys and visit her grandmother who told her about the evil spirits and the good spirits. That part I don't like because it is sad that she believed in those spirits.

Some Indians from Powhatan's tribe came and captured John Smith. Everyone wanted to kill John Smith, but if an Indian girl said, "no" they had to obey her. Pocahontas said not to kill him, so they became friends. You should get the book to see what else happens. There are a lot more amazing adventures in the story Pocahontas!
