For her work in children's literature, Barbara O'Connor has received numerous accolades, including several Parents' Choice honors.

Life in Fayette, South Carolina, is nothing but boring for Popeye. Then an RV crashes in front of his house, depositing Elvis Jewell and his five rowdy siblings on the scene. Elvis likes to make his own adventures and doesn't have much time for rules. This excites Popeye to no end, and soon he befriends this strange visitor.

One day, while playing by the river, the two witness miniature boats carrying secret messages floating with the current, thus inspiring a epic tiny adventure.

    " It's a small book but a cute story. I think kids would like it if they would try it...especially the copies that have a much better cover than this boring one. "

    " Fantastic. I think this would make a great read aloud (I've used Greetings from Nowhere as a read aloud). I love how Barbara O'Connor captures the simplicity, freedom, and adventure of childhood. The kids in this book are just so endearing. It makes me want to be a kid again. I listened to the audio version, and the narrator is perfect - I laughed out loud as I was walking my dog! I also love the way she weaved vocabulary throughout the story without it sounding contrived. Loved the ending - great text to use for mood, setting, and character. I also admire how she can create poignancy right after something funny. Brilliant. O'Connor is a great author, and I can't wait until her new one comes out - On the Road to Mr. Mineo's. "

    " This is a really sweet adventure tale set in the dog days of summer in South Carolina. Life is boring in Popeye's town until the Holiday Rambler, a sleek silver motorhome, drives through and gets stuck in the mud. Popeye makes friends with one of the Rambler's occupants, a young boy named Elvis, and never looks at life the same way again. "
