    Holling Hoodhood is really in for it. He's just started seventh grade with Mrs. Baker, a teacher he knows is out to get him. The year is 1967, and everyone has bigger things to worry about, especially Vietnam. Then there's the family business. As far as Holling's father is concerned, the Hoodhoods need to be on their best behavior: the success of Hoodhood and Associates depends on it.

    Angela says: "Funny and well-written"
    "Fantastic book for kids and adults"
    Overall

    We still have about an hour left of this book and are SO wishing it wouldn't end. My daughters (7 and 11) have been listening with me in the car as we commute and there have been times I almost needed to pull off the road. I laughed so hard I was crying. Then there are poignant moments, so sweet and heart wrenching -- and I cried for them too. I'm not especially weepy; this is just a really good book. My daughters have already read a good bit of Shakespeare, but this inspired them to read more and go back to some favorites. They loved the Caliban curses: Toads, beetles, bats!
