From the Publisher
Annotation Ten-year-old Arthur Rasby is miserable--his parents are always fighting, and, although no one has said so, he knows his mother is going to have a baby. The only way he is happy is when he writes things down in his journal. When he is sent off to stay with his Great-Aunt Elda and Great-Uncle Wrisby on their farm, Arthur discovers for the very first time that life can be wonderful.
First Line The summer Arthur Rasby was ten years old was a problem summer. During the daytime his mother and father argued. At night they whispered loudly.
Editors Note After a summer visit to his aunt and uncle's farm, Arthur begins to understand there is more than one way of seeing and doing and loving--that there is a world waiting for him to discover. An ALA Notable Children's Book.
Editors Note 3 Arthur Rasby is ten years old and having the worst summer of his life. His parents don't listen to him, so he writes everything down -- everything that's real -- in his journal. But when he goes to stay with his Great-Aunt Elda and Great-Uncle Wrisby on their farm, his world is turned upside down. For the first time Arthur wonders what's real and what's not.His aunt and uncle do things Arthur's parents would never do -- like climbing out windows to sit in trees, singing to their pet pig, and speaking French to a pet chicken. Life on the farm happens much too fast to write down -- sometimes wonderful, sometimes terrible. Arthur begins to understand there is more than one way of seeing and doing and loving. And he realizes there's a whole world just waiting to be discovered.
