Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The wacky, crazy farmer Josh McBroom tells his tall tales with great relish and young readers will giggle in delight as he recounts his adventures on his farm with amazingly fertile top soil. His soil is so rich that seeds sprout and grow into fruit-bearing plants in minutes, and the McBroom family uses their plants like a clock. Cucumbers grow "an inch a second...kind of like a second hand." This book is a reissue of three McBroom stories: McBroom the Rainmaker, McBroom's Ghost, and McBroom's Zoo. Blake's scratchy, wild illustrations suit the stories perfectly. 1998 (orig.
