  1. Big Red Novel - Penguin Random House

    Big Red Novel - Penguin Random House

    SKU: 1937


    Before Old Yeller or Where the Red Fern Grows, there was Big Red, the classic boy-and-dog story of adventure and friendship in the wild mountains of Pennsylvania.

    Danny, a trapper's son, knows more about the woods, trapping, and hunting than he does about the big city or dog shows, but when Red's owner sees seventeen-year-old Danny's love for the dog, he entrusts the boy with training the champion Irish Setter.

    Filled with heart, and loved by young readers for decades, this timeless classic thrills with backwoods adventure as Danny and Red challenge Old Majesty, the biggest, most dangerous bear of the Wintapi, meet the challenges of the wild country, compete in championship dog shows, and become best friends.

    Centerburg Tales MORE ADVENTURES OF HOMER PRICE By Robert McCloskey

    SKU: 12774



    Centerburg might be your town. Grampa Hercules and his never-ending tall tales, Dulcy Dooner, the uncooperative citizen, unbusinesslike Uncle Ulysses and his friendly lunchroom, the flustered sheriff, the pompous judge—they are all as American as they come. But there’s a subtle and delightful difference. In Centerburg, along with the routine of day-to-day living, the most preposterous things keep happening.

    But nothing fazes Homer Price! Ragweeds taller than fire ladders, music that sets a whole town dancing—he solves these problems calmly and efficiently. Homer Price is a boy with a good supply of common sense—and ingenuity!

    Homer’s Grampa Hercules is a delightful old rascal and his extravagent reminiscences of his youth are the starting point of many of the episodes. The chapter titles are as enticing as the chapters themselves: The Hide-a-Ride, Looking for Gold, Ever So Much More So, Experiment 13, Grampa Hercules and the Gravitty-Bitties, Pie and Punch and You-Know-Whats.

    Mr. McCloskey’s characters have warmth and kindness and a healthy curiosity; but they are not above a few minor faults and foibles. They are unmistakenably alive. Like Mr. McCloskey himself, they are perpetually amused by the everyday hazards and discrepancies around them.
