Product Details


“In this hilarious and poignant sequel to A Long Way to Chicago, Peck once again shows that country life is anything but boring.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Again, Peck has created a delightful, insightful tale that resounds with a storyteller’s wit, humor, and vivid description.” —School Library Journal

“With the same combination of wit, gentleness, and outrageous farce as Peck’s Newbery Honor book, Long Way from Chicago, this sequel tells the story of Joey’s younger sister, Mary Alice, 15, who spends the year of 1937 back with Grandma Dowdel in a small town in Illinois.” —Booklist
