But nothing fazes Homer Price! Ragweeds taller than fire ladders, music that sets a whole town dancing--he solves these problems calmly and efficiently. Homer Price is a boy with a good supply of common sense-and ingenuity!
Homer's Grampa Hercules is a delightful old rascal and his extravagant reminiscences of his youth are the starting point of many of the episodes. The chapter titles are as enticing as the chapters themselves: The Hide-a-Ride, Looking for Gold, Ever So Much More So, Experiment 13, Grampa Hercules and the Gravitty-Bitties, Pie and Punch and You-Know-Whats.
Mr. McCloskey's characters have warmth and kindness and a healthy curiosity; but they are not above a few minor faults and foibles. They are unmistakably alive. Like Mr. McCloskey himself, they are perpetually amused by the everyday hazards and discrepancies around them. Recommended for ages 6 to 12. 191 pages, hardcover from Penguin Books.
