Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
An enormous, red, wooden crate appeared on the street outside Tom's house overnight. No one knows what it is or whom it belongs to, but the whole neighborhood sure wants to know! They also want to move it. After all, it's blocking half the street. The police suggest Tom's dad call the fire department, the fire department suggests he call the city, and the city won't send someone out for several days. So, what are the neighbors to do? How can they possibly hope to budge this incredibly large, ridiculously heavy crate? Tom, his friend Sanjeev, and twins Zoe and Chloe will have to put their heads together to solve this perplexing mystery. With a little bit of luck, some scientific knowledge, ingenuity, and some community elbow grease, they might not only be able to answer the question, "How do we move the crate?" but also "What's in it?" This latest addition to the "Go Bananas" series is a quick-paced, over-the-top book that makes reading fun. Readers will even enjoy the brief explanations of friction and force at the book's end. 2006, Crabtree, Ages 8 to 9.
