Publisher Comments:

Tomie's family starts building their new house at 26 Fairmount Avenue in 1938, just as a hurricane hits town, starting off a busy, crazy year. Tomie has many adventures all his own, including eating chocolate with his Nana Upstairs, only to find out--the hard way--that they have eaten chocolate laxative. He tries to skip kindergarten when he finds out he won't learn to read until first grade. "I'll be back next year," he says. When Tomie goes to see Snow White, he creates another sensation. Tomie dePaola's childhood memories are hilarious, and his charming illustrations are sure to please.

Synopsis:

Many things happened the year Tomie's family built their new house at 26 Fairmount Avenue, in Meriden, Connecticut, including the hurricane of 1938, Tomie's first day of kindergarten, and more. This is the first in a series of chapter books told from Tomie's perspective as a little boy. A 2000 Newbery Honor Book. Illustrations.

When I first read this book I couldn't put it down. I have since read the next two in the series and hoping to find another. In this book Tomie relates the big move to the new house and how it affects him and his family. He is just a little boy and enjoying everything. Tomie has a fantastic way of enchanting children and adults in his writing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a hearty laugh and clean writing. Thank you, Tomie for seeing your life through your memories.
