Thirteen-year-old Rosie Beckett has never strayed further from her family's farm than a horse can pull a cart. Then a letter from her Aunt Euterpe arrives, and everything changes. It's 1893, the year of the World's Columbian Exposition-the "wonder of the age"-a.k.a. the Chicago World's Fair. Aunt Euterpe is inviting the Becketts to come for a visit and go to the fair! Award-winning author Richard Peck's fresh, realistic, and fun-filled writing truly brings the World's Fair-and Rosie and her family-to life. Download and start listening now!

    " Richard Peck - my favorite children's author (and one of my mom's favorites) does it again. He writes one simple yet amazing book after another. Funny and touching...the whole package. "

    " this book was alright. nothing special happened to catch my attention, but at the same time, i didnt hate it. the main character leaves her family for a summer and goes to visit her aunt. while she is there, she goes to this fair, and she has a great time meeting people. it seems like if this was a real life story, the person would have had a good time, but as a reader, it was just a little slow.....

    " I selected this book as a read aloud for my 3rd graders because we study Chicago for the whole year in social studies and we had talked about the Colombian World's Exhibition. I loved the book for giving us some historical fiction to discuss these events over. The biggest problem was that even with me reading the book aloud and stopping to talk about the vocabulary a lot of it was over the 8 & 9 year olds heads that I was reading it to. Thus, they missed a lot of the humor or were confused at times. So now I just need to find social studies material for them. The storyline was a bit dry at times, but then the book wrapped up abruptly and quickly at the end, so that could have been improved. At the end of the day a decent book, not amazing! "
