    " Adorably Funny, the tall-tale type that's almost believable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 11/4/2013

    " This is the essence of homespun humor. Grandpa Hercules' stories are hilarious, as is the way they confound his listeners' sense of credulity. I don't wanna overthink it but this book is as good as any exploration of the way that stories can be true whether or not they really happened that way. "

    " I realised that I had never actually read this one before. Oh, what I missed out on!! Love it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol | 9/9/2013

    " Not as good as "Homer Price", but then again, that's the case with a lot of sequels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 8/1/2013

    " We love Homer Price. This is just good storytelling, relaxed, full of tangents, and a bit exaggerated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Le-li | 7/30/2013

    " A pretty ok book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 4/27/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 4/14/2013

    " I don't think we've ever successfully made it through this book. It's such a snorefest that Homer himself is sleeping on the cover. Such a disappointment after the wonder and magical storytelling in "Homer Price." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie | 4/8/2013

    " Ah.....I love these stories. :) The only reason I didn't give this book five stars was the last story, which I always found a bit sinister as a younger kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 3/25/2013

    " This is a continuation of his Homer Price which I loved as a child. Love the Tall Tales the grandfather tells. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 3/8/2013

    " Reading this one with Joe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/6/2013

    " I found this book in a library sale was was thrilled- I hadn't read the original book in years, but these charming tales are almost as good as the original. Great to visit familiar characters, but try to read "Homer Price" first. "
