    My 5th and 6th graders are currently reading this book It s quite delightful I started the audio book on the way home from work and couldn t turn it off I adore big boned Grandma Dowdel, with her crafty schemes, her happy trigger finger, and her eyes in the back of her heart Some of her ornery sayings and unexpected pranks had me laughing out loud And best of all, her bold, pushy, cantankerous exterior hides her tender, compassionate, unselfish interior Watching Mary Alice grow to care for and u [...]

    This was a laugh out loud short that I could have listened to for hours The small town, rural, characters are the very best All are so creative and quite different that I could not wait to see what they would do next Grandma is someone I would love to know This is a series I won t miss.

    3.5 stars I did not really care much for Mary Alice, who is sent to spend the year with her kooky grandmother because her parents cannot afford to feed her in the late 1930 s On the other hand, I really liked the grandmother, who is a hoot and a prankster, wreaking mischief both on deserving teenagers and adults My favorite quote from the grandmother about how much easier life was then When I was a girl, we had to walk in our sleep to keep from freezing to death This is a feel good story though, [...]

    I think this is a first Never before have I read a sequel before reading the original novel At least as far as I can recall The Discworld books don t count They aren t organized in a proper order, are they You can t call a book a sequel unless it s called a sequel on the cover Well, I suppose I can make an exception if it has a number on the spine I usually hold out for the original, but in this case my daughter s curriculum assigned her to read this volume and, unlike my daughter, I wasn t able [...]

    It s funny because when I think about the Grandma Dowdel books, I tend to remember not being as impressed by Grandma as the rest of the world seems to be the children s literature world, anyway But when I actually read the books, I am won over completely I m not sure why my memory works that way.What I particularly liked about this book was that it was a lesson in show don t tell emotions Grandma Dowdel is a gruff, rough, occasionally mean old woman But she also has a caring heart, though she re [...]

    During the depression, a fifteen year old girl goes from Chicago to the countryside to stay with her grandmother for a year The grandmother is the kind of person that other people would call a character The book relates some of her strategems and antics, and they tend to range from amusing to very funny.My trouble with the book is that it has no story, and no drive Rather, each chapter centers on some Holiday during the year And with each Holiday, we get another droll incident about something mi [...]

    Listened to this with my true love I wasn t the only one sniffling at the ending I love this book with all my heart Grandma Dowdel reminds me a lot of my own grandmother, and listening to this brings her back a little I love the cats in the cob house, and what happens when the tornado comes to town I love how Joey is and isn t here for the whole book, just like real life.It s absolutely splendid, and a lovely narrator doesn t hurt a bit Highly recommended.

    I re read this one for our Battle of the Books competition at school I d forgotten how much I enjoy Richard Peck s books

    This is a charming book and quite short It is about a teen girl from Chicago during the Depression who goes to stay for a year in rural Illinois with her quirky grandmother It is really a series of vignettes about this year, and it s a great character study of the grandmother Oddly, the main character, Mary Alice, isn t terribly interesting or play much of a role in this book except to merely watch and tell the story It reads a bit like a memoir than a novel, and the fact that I listened to it [...]

    I remember loving this one as a kid, and I certainly enjoyed it this time around Peck s humor is spot on, and his characterizations are truly delightful Frankly, I think this book lacks the punch of some of its contemporary Newbery winners, but it s still an enjoyable tale.

    A well deserved 5 stars for this heart warming little gem GSD B of B 2017 18.

    Still such a fun read Re read for the Battle of the Books.
