Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly

Junior Library Guild

  • Patricia Reilly Giff has created a spirited story centered around a large, boisterous family with sibling fracases and a quirky small-town adventure.
  • Recent fifth-grade graduate Hunter provides a fresh and convincing first-person narrative: “We take a different route home so we don’t bore ourselves to death.”
  • Hunter and his twin brother, Zack, leave a trail of destruction wherever they go—ruining a cello, laptop, and bathroom ceiling, among other things. But the two are hilariously unaware of the impact their antics and carelessness have on others. Overhearing his mother lamenting the summers, when all the kids are home, Hunter thinks: “I really love the summers. Poor Mom. She should just sit outside and read a book or something.”
  • Readers will enjoy tracking the characters as they freely roam the neighborhood with its unusual landmarks, such as the enormous tooth hanging outside of the dentist’s office and the monumental soup kettle in the town “round.”
