Overview

Tomie is overjoyed because his baby sister, Maureen, is finally strong enough to come home from the hospital. Over the next months, he is in a dance recital and he gets to go to the World's Fair. Soon, the school year is at an end. Summer is full of fun things to do, like going to the beach and celebrating the Fourth of July-but Tomie can't wait for school to start again. He hopes he'll get Miss Kiniry, the first-grade teacher he likes the best. In first grade he will finally-finally-learn to read. And maybe even get a library card of his own!

"DePaola's writing and recollective skills are so fresh that kids will feel like he's sitting right next to them, telling his tales in and out of school with disarming charisma and not a hint of nostalgia." (The Horn Book)

"More please." (Kirkus Reviews, pointer review)

Author/illustrator Tomie dePaola has given readers a glorious glimpse into his life with such autobiographical picture books as Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs, Tom, and The Art Lesson. Now, following his Newbery Honor-winning 26 Fairmount Avenue and Here We All Are, Tomie dePaola uses an engaging chapter-book format to take readers back to his childhood, and recount more memorable moments from his funny, fabulous life. Whether he's starring in a dance recital, praying for his baby sister's recovery from pneumonia, making his mark in a new sidewalk's wet cement, or at last learning to read, Tomie's warmth and charm will delight readers -- and welcome them into his home.
