The Story That Didn’t Want to End by Joe Fortson is an adventure any avid young reader would love to experience. With a storybook waiting for his childhood reader to come back into his adventures, Joe Fortson shows the natural human instinct of avoiding change. The Story That Didn’t Want to End takes you to meet witches and pirates, befriend trolls and fly through space, with a new adventure at the end of every page. But we all know a story cannot last forever. So what happens when a story chooses not to end?

The Story That Didn’t Want to End by Joe Fortson is a fantastic story that is sure to make all hearts warm for the book, no matter the age. The story immediately started off with a scene of mystery and unanswered questions, and pulled me in with the urge to have all the answers. The author did a wonderful job of describing each adventure and making the whole thing unique. It is truly a story never told before. Each adventure was right on point for what younger children are most interested in. Joe Fortson hit his target audience perfectly.

The Story That Didn’t Want to End also showed the human nature of always trying to avoid change. It taught a lesson that not all change is bad and the outcomes could be even greater than the challenges at hand. The author not only presented a well thought out story, but taught us all the joys of accepting changes in our lives.
