Thank you Mr. Falker and The Junkyard Wonders
In both books there at school. Also they both have Tricia. The theme in both books are believe in your self. The teacher gives them encouragement. They both talk about people who are different in a good way.
In one book the setting is in California and the other book is in Michigan. The problem in the Thank you Mr. Falker is Tricia can't read. In The Junkyard Wonders the problem is the kids in her class thought that they were a piece of trash and so did the rest of the school.
