About the Author:

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.

Book Description Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 1977. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s not that the folks in Centerburg are especially nosy; it s just that in a small town everyone seems to know everything. But Homer Price does know more about what s going on than anyone, because he s usually in the middle of things.And whenever there s a problem Homer puts everything aright with his own common sense and ingenuity - like the time Uncle Heracles jumped out of his clothes and landed in another state, or a slick salesman duped the whole town, or the whole town started speaking in jingles. Nothing fazes Homer Price!. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780140310726
