Peck is at his best with these hilarious stories that rest solidly within the American literary tradition of Mark Twain and Bret Harte. Teachers will cherish them as great read-alouds, and older teens will gain historical perspective from this lively picture of the depression years in small-town America. (Ages 12 and older) --Patty Campbell
It was one of the funniest books that we had read in a long time.
On a road trip we read the book aloud and I loved it as much as my 7 year old son AND my 16 year old daughter who had read it years before in elementary school.
This was a great book that I could enjoy reading as an adult and I can recommend as a teacher.
I loved this book. I read A Long Way From Chicago, and I really loved it. I loved this book even morePublished 11 days ago by Frazier Rugg
