Centerburg is a small town somewhere in Middle America, but there is nothing ordinary about it. Something unusual is always going on. And you can be sure Homer Price is in the center of things, putting them right with his own brand of common sense. There’s the time Uncle Hercules takes the Gravitty-Bitties challenge. He almost retires from his famous storytelling then and there except for Homer’s quick thinking. And when Dulcy plants some valuable seeds he has just inherited, he puts the whole town—maybe even the whole country—at risk. But Homer’s ingenious solution saves the day.

With this collection of hilarious tales, award-winning author Robert McCloskey takes an affectionate look at life in small-town America. Homer Price, a young man fazed by nothing, comes colorfully to life with John McDonough’s animated performance.

About the Author
Author Robert McCloskey

Robert McCloskey (1914–2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children’s books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer. He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000. You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston’s Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.
