Format: Library Binding
This was by far my favorite book growing up. It is the funny and warm story of Homer, a boy with a great floppy red hat who is treated like an outcast by his bratty sisters (and everyone else), through a twist on Abbott and Costello "Who's On First" routine. Homer finds redemption in a touching ending that sends the message that conformity is dangerous and that it's o.k. to be a little different

I loved this book as a kid and was thrilled that my six-year-old niece enjoyed it enough for repetitive reading (I still don't mind reading it over and over). The main character is endearing and the text is funny and fast-paced. I keep it on my bookshelf with my childhood classics and keepsakes.

I loved this book when I was a child. It was one of my favorites and I was so excited when I learned how to read it to my mother. Now I want to share it with my niece and hope she laughs as hard as I did.

I actually still have my 1962 Hardcover edition and wouldn't part with it for the world! My children even love it. It is 64 pages, but is very easy to read. (My 5 year old can read it too!)

I've adored this book since I was 7 years old. This is a timeless children's classic that delights and endures all fair-weather fads or trends. Homer's appeal is universal and there is no child above the age of 5 who will not see a part of him or herself in any of the characters.

The wit, the humour, the gentle adventure bouffe of Homer and his four insouciant sisters will bring laughter and mirth to young readers and a tear or two of love and comfort to those who read to them.

Please, do not allow any child dear to you pass through the portal of young discovery and innocence without the renewable joy of this book.

I had this book growing up and my older brother always called me Homer. (I was probably the only little girl with the nickname of Homer). When I had my daughter 6 years ago my brother bought me a copy of Who's a Pest and a copy of Piggle (A Homer Story). My daughter who is now in 1st grade loves these books and they are ones that my whole household doesn't mind hearing and reading over and over again. I highly recommend these books for every child!!! We often have moments where we will quote from the book.

My sister read Who's A Pest to her four boys when they were young. She gave the book to my grandson as her boys were grown up. The book ended up going through all of my grandkids and finally fell apart from loving use. This year my sister was blessed with her first grandchild. I was thrilled to find a copy of the book so our newest little one can laugh at Homer and his adventures.

I got this book for a friend who had read it to her girls when they were little. She wanted the book to read to her grandchildren and I told her I would see if I could find it. I read the book and will be sending to her for her birthday. It is so cute. She remembers the quad sisters and the one pesky little brother. I'll be sending it to her soon.
