Right, Right, Meteorite! by Roger C. Muren is a children’s book about the true story of the Willamette Meteorite. It was the largest meteorite ever found in North America. The story starts off with a meteorite soaring through the sky and crashing down to Earth. Elly Hughes discovers it and, thinking he can make a profit, he decides to drag it all the way onto his property so he can claim it. It takes him three months! When he finally has it on his land, he opens it up for business. That is until what he did is discovered, and it becomes such a big deal that they go to court to determine the true owner of the meteorite.
I have to say, I was intrigued after reading what this book was about. I didn’t know anything about this event, so I just had to read it. Not only was it a fascinating story, but the poetry-like verses with rhymes and the beautiful yet humorous illustrations just made this book so likable. It is easy to read, and children will love the way the story is told. I’m an adult, and I did! I also just loved the illustrations. These resemble simple pencil drawings, but that’s what’s so great about it. It would almost be odd if there were colors. And the story was just captivating. After reading it, I had to do my own research about the true story it is based on, and I thoroughly enjoyed learning all about this historically important but also silly story. I do want to thank Roger C. Muren for writing this book. Right, Right, Meteorite! will both educate and entertain kids, and even adults.
