Listener Opinions

    " Reading to my little man. He calls it the Donut Man book. Love it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lou | 2/4/2014

    " I was named after Homer's little brother from this book. Kind of have to like it, you know? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theo kids | 2/2/2014

    " A clever boy and his everyday adventures in a small town! Fun stories and great illistrations. Since this book is set in the 1940's, some of the situations are not relevant, but still entertaining and fun. A great book for my boys - they loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 1/30/2014

    " I hadn't thought about this book for years and then saw it on a library shelf. I loved reading these stories as a preteen, as did all of my siblings. I also loved to look at the cover. Homer owns a pet skunk (named Aroma) and he uses it to catch a gang of robbers. He has a wild adventure with his uncle's donut machine. And he gets involved in a contest to see who can save the most string. Memorable fun and enjoyable characters. This one is a classic! "

    " A great and funny classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryanne | 1/7/2014

    " Audio version of this is just terrific...I can still hear the narrator saying, "As regular as a clock goes tick..." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcee | 1/6/2014

    " DD's 2nd Read-a-Loud for school this year. Hilarious book. The kids really enjoyed the quirky characters and the fun happenings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 12/18/2013

    " I loved this book as a kid. What kid doesn't like the idea of a donut machine! These are fun stories that brought back my childhood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ken | 11/23/2013

    " I wanted to live in Centerburg when I read this book. I wanted a donut machine. I wanted the book to have more pages. I read it in in a quiet corner of the old Irvington Public Library, curled up in an old, fat leather chair that was hidden from everything else in the world by a wall of books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 11/23/2013

    " I've actually seen a donut machine similar to the one in this book. A cart in Cameron Park, conveyor belts and levers measuring dough, dropping it into a pool of grease - it was endlessly fascinating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 11/23/2013

    " Old fashioned kids book. Girls barely make an appearance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 11/17/2013

    " This was another book that Jack (4 yrs old) & I read together. Some of the humor was a bit over his head, but he particularly enjoyed the donut story and the robber story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 10/15/2013

    " This is an old book my mom read to us when we were kids. I read it to my second-graders this year and they LOVED it! It is a must for all children!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Porkpie | 10/7/2013

    " Oh man, Robert McCloskey - where to begin? The Homer Price books are absolute bedrock memories for me as a young reader. These books are something you end up inhaling, breathing into yourself and grafting onto your DNA somehow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Shilstone | 7/21/2013

    " Was a big fan as a young youth beginning to become a voracious reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 6/16/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 10/27/2012

    " I don't know what, but something made me think of Homer Price this morning, so I thought I'd add it on here. Loved this big when I was younger. Still like it. Great for reading aloud--especially to children. It's funny and fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorraine | 10/1/2012

    " Reading Homer Price takes me back to being a kid, not because my childhood was anything like his, but because this was the sort of old-fashioned stuff I loved to read when I was a kid. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 9/10/2012

    " Good ol' Centerburg. I love the donut story! And Aroma! And Super Duper! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorna | 6/24/2012

    " Published in 1943, this book is like a mashup of the unplugged childhood experiences of Henry Huggins meets the Andy Griffith Show with its cast of memorable characters and wacky events. A nostalgic, enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri | 6/4/2012

    " One of my all-time childhood favorites! "

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.
