My 5 and 7 year old sons LOVE this book. The story touches on so many things near and dear to children that you don't even notice that it was set during the WWII era. My wife and I found our selves chuckling and rooting for Rufus right along with our kids. Perfect for long rides in the car!
For a frame of reference- we also loved the Stuart Little reading narrated Julie Harris.

I enjoyed listening to this book. It reminded me of my grandmother. Little Rufus is a determined boy and he is persistent. Written as though the time were WW1, the story covers things unique to this era. Victory gardens, oleomargarine and the orange coloring capsule, badges and knitting for the war effort are some of the things explained in this book. The culture of society was extremely different than today. Machine made wash cloths and socks, working to give money to the war effort and food rations have taken the sense of accomplishment away from the people. We need to be needed and this book shows that concept well.
