Welcome to Silver Street Farm Hardcover – February 28, 2012
Gemma, Meera, and Karl have been friends since kindergarten, when their dream of having a farm in the city was first born amidst Legos and wooden blocks. Now in fifth grade, Karl is secretly thrilled when his Russian aunt is tricked into buying two lambs disguised as poodles, but keeping lambs who defy housebreaking in an apartment is not an option. Gemma’s volunteer hours at the vet’s office get her five duck eggs that hatch in her bedroom. Meera comes up with a solution to the animal situation and the start of their dream: the abandoned train station is overgrown and has everything they need for a farm in the city, if only the city council won’t level it to make room for a parking garage. With kids actively seeking to better their city as a focal point, Davies has begun an amusing romp of a series. Clever children and supportive adults come together in this clever chapter book that will spark the imaginations of the target audience. Grades 3-5. --Melissa Moore

What a darling story and delightfully hilarious! I got a good upbeat "joy" feeling from reading this book. A fun little book that would make a perfect read-aloud to youngsters and a good chapter book for those ready to read books without pictures on every page. The story has a forward motion to it with events getting bigger and bigger until the book ends in its satisfying conclusion. Plenty of silly happenings with some laugh out loud moments. One does need to suspend reality though as the adults' behaviour is more what children would wish of them than how they really would behave. Highly enjoyed.
