Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young Tomie receives a diary for Christmas and records all his adventures over the next year: sledding on his Junior Flexible Flyer, the big dance recital, a summer visit to an amusement park, the start of second grade, and real art lessons. But one Sunday in December, the dePaolas turn on the radio to learn that Pearl Harbor has been attacked. Truly, things will never be the same.

With the charming new feature of handwritten diary entries, the fifth book set at the Newbery Honor winning address of 26 Fairmount Avenue warmly captures both the fun and serious aspects of Tomie's childhood with a touching, timely relevance.

All through the year, exciting things happen and Tomie writes about them in his diary. Sledding down the steep hill on his new Junior Flexible Flyer, being a pirate in the dance recital, and starting second grade with real art lessons at last! Then one Sunday morning Tomie's family hears news on the radio that changes everything. Master storyteller Tomie dePaola takes us back to 1941 and lets us experience what life was like growing up in the dePaola household.
