Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thirteen-year-old Rosie Beckett has never strayed further from her family's farm than a horse can pull a cart. Then a letter from her Aunt Euterpe arrives, and everything changes. It's 1893, the year of the World's Columbian Exposition-the "wonder of the age"-a.k.a. the Chicago World's Fair. Aunt Euterpe is inviting the Becketts to come for a visit and go to the fair! Award-winning author Richard Peck's fresh, realistic, and fun-filled writing truly brings the World's Fair-and Rosie and her family-to life.

Review:

"Peck's unforgettable characters, cunning dialogue and fast-paced action will keep readers of all ages in stitches as he captures a colorful chapter in American history." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Readers will feel that they've actually been to the fair." Booklist

Review:

"This is situational comedy steeped in turn-of-the-19th-century American history....Extra chuckles are in store for anyone who has an unusual aunt, pesky little brother, or wacky grandfather." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Thirteen-year-old Rosie Beckett embarks on the adventure of her life when her family takes a trip to the World's Columbian Exposition, a.k.a. the Chicago World's Fair, in 1893. An ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

The book begins with the killing and "skinning" of a squirrel that many children find quite disturbing.
