    Dan Arnsan has written a touching period piece, reminiscent of A Christmas Story, from a young boy's perspective growing up in the 1950's. He has captured perfectly the feeling of small town America at a time when everyone knew each other, kids played outside unsupervised, and summers were spent in a land of imagination and creativity. Yet Trevor, the protagonist, doesn't have an idyllic life and that is what makes this story feel real. Dan creates a vivid and believable character in Trevor and the reader is carried along with him as he builds his tank, makes a lasting and unusual friendship, and most importantly, learns some important life lessons. I highly recommend Trevor's Tank to readers young and old!

    Trevor’s Tank Written by Dan Arnsan A Review by H William Smith I should say immediately that I am Dan Arnsan’s friend. I am also an editor and published writer myself. While my friendship with Dan brought me to this book, it is the work itself that I am writing about. I can say, without reservation that I thoroughly enjoyed the book and here are my reasons for highly recommending it. Do not expect a synopsis of the plot here. Buy this neat little book and discover Trevor’s Tank on your own. The book is worthy of consideration on a number of levels. Primarily, it is targeted for an audience of young people aged eight to 12 years old, with a focus directed at young males. The writing is age-appropriate without being too simplistic or overly complex. It is, in my opinion, appropriate for its audience as is the story. The themes expressed are positive and well supported. The story itself is engaging and should carry a young reader along to its conclusion. The book is 111 pages long which... More > feels right for the age group, not too long but long enough to tell the story and challenge the reader. There is little loss of focus or straying into extraneous story lines that could cause a young reader to put the book down in frustration. This should be a book that young readers, particularly that very hard group to reach, young males, will really enjoy. On that level I truly recommend Trevor’s Tank. That being said, I initially picked up the book because a friend wrote it and, as an editor with a lot of writer friends, I wanted to read Dan’s work. What I discovered was that I was completely engaged by the story and enjoyed the book on its own merits. The writing, although targeted toward a younger audience, was clean, tight and carried the plot towards its conclusion in a way that was most enjoyable. It is a good story simply told with enough depth and subtlety to have kept me interested in the next turn of the page. In that way Trevor’s Tank reminded me of the work of one of my favorite Montana authors, Norman MacLean. No, Trevor’s Tank is not A River Runs Through It but it has that clean, honest and economical writing style that I really like. Buy this book for your young readers and read it before you give it to them. I think you will enjoy it as well, I did.< Less

    As a baby boomer living in Royal Oak Michigan in this book's time frame, it took me back in time to childhood memories of a great place to live, play and imagine. We walked to school, had pickup baseball games and street kickball games every night of summer after dinner. Come home when the street lights come on. Thanks for the memories Dan.
