Norman Tuttle on the Last Frontier
by Tom Bodett
This book was a fun read about a boy, Norman Tuttle, growing up in Alaska. The author, Tom Bodett, is best known for his ad lib in the commercial for Motel 6– “We’ll leave the Light On”. He is a good storyteller who writes vivid imagery throughout the book. Each chapter could be read as a separate short story but it pulls together as a novel. His character doesn’t go looking for trouble but it sure has away of finding him. His life is full of ups and downs and Norman sure learns a lot.
