Annotation Silent, imaginative 11-year-old Primrose is the only person who believes that her parents, who have been lost at sea, are still alive and will someday return home. In the meantime, she must live with her Uncle Jack, a free-spirited bachelor who sells real estate. As Primrose waits for her parents to resurface, she seeks comfort at a local restaurant called The Girl on the Red Swing where everything--swordfish, steaks, and even Shepherd's pie--is served on a waffle. As Primrose tries to find her way in the world, collecting recipes and following her heart, the results are often hilarious. This 2002 Newbery Honor Book is sprinkled throughout with recipes.
First Line I live in Coal Harbour, British Columbia. I have never lived anyplace else. My name is Primrose Squarp.
Editors Note Primrose Squarp simply knows her parents did not perish at sea during a terrible storm, but try convincing the other residents of Coal Harbour on that score. For all practical purposes, at least for the time being, Primrose is an orphan, and there’s no great clamoring of prospective adopters. After realizing the impracticality of continuing to pay Miss Perfidy (a mothball-scented elderly lady) an hourly wage to baby-sit her, the town council is able to locate a relative, Uncle Jack, who reluctantly takes Primrose into his care. Primrose does warm up to living with him and in his home, despite the eerie noises resembling a hockey game that haunt her in the night. But true sanctuary can always be found at a restaurant called The Girl in the Swing, where everything—including lasagna—is served on a waffle, and where the proprietor, Miss Bowzer, offers a willing ear, as well as sage advice. Through a mixture of eccentric humor and probing philosophy, author Polly Horvath makes Primrose’s search for peace and understanding a most memorable one.
