Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this third story about the Howard family, readers will empathize with 11-year-old Nick as he adjusts to life in a small English village. Nick resents the move from his native Ohio, fearing that he won't make friends, do well in school or understand British terminology. Then older brother Marty proves unexpectedly sympathetic, Nick discovers he's good at rugby and two classmates become his good friends (one, a recent immigrant from India, shares Nick's culture shock). The story progresses smartly to its happy ending, providing along the way much local color, customs and attitudes of English countryside life. This will be enjoyed by fans of the author's When the Boys Ran the House and Pets, Vets, and Marty Howard. Ages 10-12. (March)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7 Third in a series of Howard fami ly adventures, this book takes them to England for a two-year stay. Nick, now 11, doesn't want to leave his Ohio friends and school. He must make many adjust ments: different foods, a school in which he doesn't understand many of the words, rugby, new friends. To top it off, he has to survive such classes as drama, poetry, and French. In order to adjust, Nick shares his thoughts with Spike, a hedgehog he adopts as a pet. He and his two brothers each have one hidden in their closets, a secret they keep from their mother for three months. Gradual ly, Nick becomes a part of English life, learns to play rugby, speaks in British slang, makes several new friends, and, of course, decides he wants to stay in En gland. Carris continues her traditional light-hearted writing that includes believable dialogue and characterizations and a fast-moving plot. The only flaw is the obvious and inevitable transition that Nick makes. Sure to be popular where readers are seeking more adventures of the Howard family. Bonnie L. Raasch, C. B.
