    I really enjoyed reading Peter Pomperfield and the Battle for Grandma's House. It's a really fun story. The elves were hilarious and the book made me wish I could hang out with gnomes. If you haven't read the book just know that Mr. Yams rocks. I hope we see more of Peter Pomperfield.

    As a third grade teacher I highly recommend this book for childr

    As a third grade teacher I highly recommend this book for children reading chapter books. It also makes a great read aloud for parent to read to their children or for teachers to read to their classes. D.A Thompson has a gift for words and capturing the imagination of a child. And, best of all, it is funny! Must read.
