Having said this, I would still recommend the book as a charming set of stories about life in the past. It's a fun, quick read for all ages, and I liked it even though, for me, it wasn't quite as good as the film.

The book is divided into 12 chapters, one for each month from June 1903 to May 1904. The chapters describe the quirky adventures that takes place in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lonnie Smith of St. Louis. The Smiths have five children: one son and four daughters. The children along with Mrs. Smiths' father, Grandpa Prophater, are involved in all sorts of mischievious delight, usually to the chagrin of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The book culminates in their experiences during the opening month of the World's Fair.
MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS is a delightful work of storytelling. The characters in the book reminded me of members of my own family and reading about them often caused me to chuckle as I reflected upon my own adventures of youth. The story is also a wonderful piece of history, describing events of the past in vivid details. It's hard to imagine after two world wars, countless other international missions, and the terrorism that threatens American life that the world was once a much safer and simpler place. MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS reminds us of that. And of course, being from the St. Louis area, it's nice to have a book that takes place and celebrates the area, "right here in St. Louis."
