Publisher's Summary

“I’m 11-years-old, from the city, and my parents are mean alcoholics. One day the deputy takes me away to live with some distant relatives on their sprawling farm in the country. At the Larsen farm, I meet my Uncle Knute and Aunt Clair and their two children, Glennis and her wild brother Harris. I also meet Louie, the crusty old guy who works as a farmhand and steals all the pancakes at breakfast. Harris introduces me to life on the farm, and it proves to be a rude awakening. From getting up before dawn to be kicked in the groin by a cow, to wrestling in the mud with slimy pigs, this is turning out to be quite the experience. Best-selling author Gary Paulsen is acclaimed for his many novels for young adults. This rollicking tale set just after WWII features action and laughs galore, and is sure to appeal to even the most reluctant readers.

    "In stitches start to finish."

    Paulson delivered once again. My children and I laughed all the way through. Some minor swearing. Probably best for children older than twelve.

    Story
    "The Miracle Elixir (If laughter is best med)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh YES!!! I grew up in small-town Utah, and while we weren't as wild as Harris, the environment and some adventures were very familiar. It is a fun read that so many can relate to from their youth. It is a fun and purely realistic and hilarious listen. Please, please buy and listen to (or buy and read) this book. I want everyone to enjoy this. I initially came across it after it was passed around the entire extended family on my wife's side, with all of us who read it spending most of the read laughing out loud and with tears rolling down our faces. This is a MUST LISTEN!! You will be happy when you are done (and all the way through).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harris!! (Buzzer was a close second)


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Caruso – was your favorite?

    Harris


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and you can as it is only about 4 hours long.


    Any additional comments?

    Just listen. I am not trying to sell this for Gary Paulson, I just want everyone to enjoy this. It is so much fun to envision the hilarious antics of these two young boys in small mid-west USA in the 1950's.

    "One of my favorites"

    I read this book while I was in elementary school and still loved it now when I'm 25. One of my favorite short book which keeps you laughing the whole time. Parents be advised there is mild cursing, but it's pretty mellow for today's standards
