According to his website, he has over million books in print worldwide, and has been translated into 29 languages. Theodore Boone, though just 13 years old, is an amateur lawyer respected both at school and at the courthouse. His parents are lawyers, and Theo knows everyone from court clerks to judges. He dreams of being a great lawyer or judge himself, and to this end, purposefully studies the law and doles out unofficial legal advice to troubled classmates. Theodore Boone starts out slowly. Theo is captivated by a local murder trial and desperate to watch the entire process unfold. But he initially lacks a high-stakes challenge, a goal or problem he must tackle successfully or suffer dire consequences.
T he buzz in a court: lawyers presenting their cases and judges, sitting on their mighty thrones, looking down on all those there to receive fair judgment. Theodore Boone wants it; he wants it all. With two lawyer parents and an uncle who was a lawyer, this 13 year-old wants in too! Not a divorce lawyer like his mother or a real-estate one like his father, but a criminal lawyer, one of the finest; one that stands before the best and biggest of judges for all the huge murder trials, respected and so good, that he never loses a case! Or a judge, one known for his fairness and ability to always, always go by the law.
Peter Carey did it. I am, of course, referring to adult authors turning their hand to writing for children. The most high-profile adult author recently to have turned to children's fiction is the US courtroom thriller writer John Grisham with Theodore Boone, Young Lawyer. The accompanying publicity makes it clear that this is intended for "children and adults". So how is Mr Grisham when it comes to a younger readership? What slightly muddies the water for UK children is just how American this book is.
