Product Description:

Tomie DePaola's books have such a recognizable look to them. This story is about his childhood home in Connecticut. It's his first chapter book, but he manages to add some of his charming illustrations along the way. You learn about a memorable hurricane, his neighbors, his family, including Nana Upstairs and Nana downstairs, his first day of school, and all the fun he has at his new house back in the 1930s and 40s. 60pgs, pb. ~ Sara

Publisher Description:

Tomie's family starts building their new house at 26 Fairmount Avenue in 1938, just as a hurricane hits town, starting off a busy, crazy year. Tomie has many adventures all his own, including eating chocolate with his Nana Upstairs, only to find out--the hard way--that they have eaten chocolate laxative. He tries to skip kindergarten when he finds out he won't learn to read until first grade. "I'll be back next year," he says. When Tomie goes to see Snow White, he creates another sensation. Tomie dePaola's childhood memories are hilarious, and his charming illustrations are sure to please.
