A Season of Gifts (A Long Way from Chicago, #3) by Richard PeckI quote: Hoo-boy!
This is just a great series of young peoples books, which of course can be read by all ages. And I quote: A rollicking celebration of an eccentric grandmother and childhood memories....
Its a series of three, A Year Down Yonder (https:///book/show/3...) and A Long Way from Chicago (https:///book/show/3...) are the other two previous ones, A Season of Gifts plays in 1958. Its all about Grandma Dowdel and a family who comes to live next to her in a small town where a lot is going on and Grandma seems to be in the middle of everything....
The stories are light, hilarious, funny, heartwarming. Laughing out loud, chuckling... cant avoid it when you read this. After reading some tough, dark books, or... after some period of hard work, these books are as light as a feather and just lovely and fun. Therefore: I can certainly recommend Pecks books for everyone!
Richard Peck wrote a lot of books, I need to check more of his work...
