Kevin Terwilliger lives in relative peace in Cambridge, Oregon in 1958. He feels a little bit worse for the wear after being moved hither and yon due to his father's military background. He isn't safe at his new school, either. There's a proverbial bully there named Ronald Eugene Pfefferman who doesn't seem to him to want to back down with his snide remarks. Read on, and see how Kevin fares against this turmoil with help from his friend, Connor Billingsley. There might be hope for him after all.

Not all is as it seems
A Great Little Story!
Yes, I would recommend it to anyone with kids wanting a good book to read or anyone dealing with bullies & needing a little extra courage.
I liked the little jokes Kevin would tell, such as ... the butcher said he would get Kevin some meat for his black eye just as soon as he rang a lady out. Kevin said she doesn't look wet! (LOL)
I like Kevin & Conner. The 2 boys together always had each others backs and were funny. Just how friends should be.
Yes I did listen to this book in 1 setting!
I liked the story as written by Edward Petty. IT had fun and adventure in it. Spoke of bullies and reprimands by teachers. This is how school was back in the 50s & 60s. I think there is still a lot this book can teach kids. I like how the narrator read the book too! It was read flawlessly & with lots of excitement.
