    Story
    "CHildhood Fun!"

    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!
