This novel, with its quirky characters, folksy setting, classic cars, and hilariously larger-than-life moments, is vintage Richard Peck, an offbeat, deliciously wicked comedy that is also unexpectedly moving.

"Another gem from Peck. "(School Library Journal)
"Peck's one-liners, colorful physical comedy, and country dialect, prominent in most of his recent novels, are great as usual." (Booklist)
Once again, listening to a story by Richard Peck is pure pleasure. His characters are so real, you just love them. There is something special about the way he can give you a sense of place and time. Indiana in the early 1900s, dirt roads, early autos, old farm houses, townspeople who were quirky and real, all these brought this story to life. If you read this, Richard Peck, please accept my thanks.
