Top Secret by John Reynolds Gardiner

Allen Brewster is a 9 year old fourth grader determined to create an amazing science fair project. His idea? Human photosynthesis. Everyone except his grandfather tells him it’s not possible, but he tries – and succeeds – anyway. He gets the attention of the president of the United States and ultimately his discovery is classified as top secret.

Top Secret was a very cute story. It was totally unbelievable, but at the same time taught the lesson that you can do anything you put your mind to, even when others believe you can’t. I read it out loud to my 8 and 10 year old boys and they thought it was funny and enjoyed trying to decide if human photosynthesis just might be a real possibility.
