Publisher's Summary

Homer Price lives about two miles out of Centerburg, somewhere in the Midwest. He keeps busy with school or sweeping out cabins at his parents’ tourist camp. But somehow one thing always leads to another - and he finds himself in the midst of a rib-tickling adventure. The day Homer tames a friendly skunk, he doesn’t expect his new pet to get mixed up with dangerous robbers. How can he know that the whole town will get in an uproar when he runs his uncle’s automatic doughnut machine? And who would ever believe that he could discover the secret of The Super-Duper?

With six hilarious tales, award-winning author Robert McCloskey takes an affectionate look at small-town America. Narrator John McDonough captivates children of all ages with his fresh portrayal of a youngster who has the world well under control.
