The comic genius of Robert McCloskey and his wry look at small-town America has kept readers in stitches for generations!

I don't love this like other McCloskey books. The story is okay, and the kids liked it. But the narrator uses a fake hillbilly/southern accent that not only grates to listen to, but makes all the characters seem slow-witted and unintelligent. Quirky doesn't have to sound inane. Really can't recommend this audiobook.
Home school family with six children ages 7-21. We love listening to audible books together. We like Twaddle-free books.
Homer price is a fascinating young man who encounters many adventures in his small town. This book takes you back to a time when life was simpler and childhood was a time of freedom to explore and learn. I loved this book as a child and I am glad my children have been able to enjoy it too. My six year old had an eye injury and had to keep her eyes shut for a couple days and this was a wonderful treat to be able to pull out for her to listen to. The tears vanished and the smiles and giggles began as she listened to the stories about Homer Price. The older children would wander near and then have to stay and listen awhile too. This is just good plain fun!
My kids and i have already listened to this entertaining book several times. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who like childish antics and somewhat comically ridiculous storylines. Mr. Ferreri has many choices that really add to the story.
This book was very good I would have licked it if homer was more involved in it but over all I loved it!
The care tears have very good persanelitey and I in joyed it a lot
Yes,but i do not no what.
Yes, the story was good, BUT i think it was ok.
YOU HAVE TO READ THIS. Yes, the book was worth the time. I love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE AROMA THE SKUNK !!!! The doughnut machine was great. AROMA IS THE FUNNIEST !!
the doughnut machine is the FUNNIEST !!!!!!!
The humor in the story was well presented by the reader.
As a parent I enjoyed the bits of the past my kids listened to and learned from. From my kids perspective they liked the pet skunk and the adventures that it was involved in the best.
This book had us laughing out loud.
We have chosen this to listen to several times and my girls have picked up the book to read themselves also. Proof that it's a great story.
