Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set during the years 1929-1942, and told in eight engaging episodes, this fresh and funny novel recounts a boy and his sister's annual summer trips to rural Illinois to visit their eccentric grandmother. Grandma Dowdel, a remarkable larger-than-life character, continually astounds her city-slicker grandchildren with her nonconformist behavior and her gutsy, take-charge attitude.

Synopsis:

Each summer throughout the nine years of the Great Depression, Joey and his sister Mary Alice from Chicago visit their grandmother's sleepy Illinois town. Each summer they discover a visit to Grandma Dowdel's is far from typical.
