wonderful humor

I remember watching a film (yes, a film strip in a reel-to-reel projector! not one of those new-fangled videotapes or DVDs!) way back in elementary school, containing a hilarious scene with this donut machine going crazy, cranking out donut after donut. The visual stayed with me long after any other detail. So imagine my delight when we read this book to our children and found the great donut machine adventure. It's still hilarious, and while reading it I can still see the film in my mind's eye.

And beyond the donut caper, the Homer Price books by Robert McCloskey are real gems. They contain humor, tall tales, and adventure, all wrapped in a warm, period setting. They're great!


Great book. The story is great and it is easy to read to children.
