“The Applewhites remain humorous, heartwarming and devoted to their respective crafts and each other.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Props to Tolan for keeping the plates spinning and attempting what so few authors for young readers do: switching points of view. A fun time was had by all.” (Booklist)
“The endearing family of freewheeling artists from Surviving the Applewhites returns for an encore that is cleverly plotted, emotionally satisfying, and highly entertaining. Tolan handles the large cast of characters with élan. Themes of creativity, individuality, and cooperation are explored as the roller-coaster plot unfolds and humorous moments abound.” (School Library Journal)
Praise for SURVIVING THE APPLEWHITES “Tolan has pulled off something special here.” (Booklist (starred review))
Praise for SURVIVING THE APPLEWHITES: “This has terrific booktalk and read-aloud potential, and will help fill the need for humorous contemporary fiction.” (School Library Journal (starred review))
Praise for SURVIVING THE APPLEWHITES: “Humor abounds in the ever-building chaos.” (Publishers Weekly)

From the Back Cover
When the famously artistic Applewhites fallon hard times, they turn their sixteen-acre home, Wit's End, into Eureka!, a summer camp for creative children. It seems like a good idea. . . .
But amid the ordinary chaos of temperamental artists and headstrong campers, anonymous, threatening notes begin to appear in the Applewhites' mailbox. As the only two level-headed ones in the bunch, E.D. Applewhite and Jake Semple are determined to get to the bottom of things. Will they be able to save the camp—and the family—from disaster?

Overall, these are well-written, well-paced books that will keep kids turning the pages and thinking about what talents they might discover in themselves, if only they gave themselves a chance...
I don't want to spoil the book for others, but I will say that I was very disappointed by a gratuitous final paragraph which (for me) takes this book out of the category of "suitable for my 4th-6th grader".
If you're particular about boy-girl relationships in your kids' books, make sure to read the book to the final word before you decide if it's suitable for your kids.
