Centerburg is a small town somewhere in Middle America, but there is nothing ordinary about it. Something unusual is always going on. And you can be sure Homer Price is in the center of things, putting them right with his own brand of common sense. There’s the time Uncle Hercules takes the Gravitty-Bitties challenge. He almost retires from his famous storytelling then and there except for Homer’s quick thinking. And when Dulcy plants some valuable seeds he has just inherited, he puts the whole town - maybe even the whole country - at risk. But Homer’s ingenious solution saves the day.
With this collection of hilarious tales, award-winning author Robert McCloskey takes an affectionate look at life in small-town America. Homer Price, a young man fazed by nothing, comes colorfully to life with John McDonough’s animated performance.
