Centerburg Tales: More Adventures of Homer Price Paperback – October 27, 1977 by Robert McCloskey (Author) Review
I read these stories in my youth and took the up for my children as well, My seven and six year old son and daughter, love these stories. They are campy and funny just what kids like. Though written in the mid-late 40s. These stories are priceless and for any era. This book is a continuation of tales from McCloskey’s Homer Price and a just as well written and campy. McCloskey was an award winning writer of many other fine children’s books: Make way for Ducklings, Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine and Time of Wonder. Check them out with your little ones. They are worth it. I was glad to still see these in print and available. -Read Reviews-
