Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-It's Mr. Dunphee's 100th birthday, and he decides it's time for some changes. He gives his dog a new name and resolves to clean up his home and get rid of the stuff that has accumulated over the years. As he puts boxes and books out in the yard, his snobby neighbors are not pleased, but two of the local children are intrigued. They help him repair his roof with his license-plate collection and re-plaster the outside of his house with his penny collection. The snooty neighbors disapprove, but the Town Council declares the dwelling a monument. The writing is fair and the ending seems a bit contrived. Illustrated with mediocre, computer-enhanced line drawings, this intergenerational story of downsizing and individualism may be useful for curriculum purposes, but will have limited appeal to general readers.-Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
