Overview

You've never met anyone quite like Rufus Moffat. He gets things done, but he gets them done his way.
When he wants to check out library books, Rufus teaches himself to write...even though he doesn't yet know how to read. When food is scarce, he plants some special "Rufus beans" that actually grow...despite his digging them up every day to check on them. And Rufus has friends that other people don't even know exist! He discovers the only invisible piano player in town, has his own personal flying horse for a day, and tours town with the Cardboard Boy, his dearest friend-and enemy.
Rufus isn't just the youngest Moffat, he's also the cleverest, the funniest, and the most unforgettable.
Eleanor Estes's beloved Moffats stories are being published in new editions as Odyssey/Harcourt Young Classics. The original interior illustrations have been retained, but handsome new cover art by Tricia Tusa gives the books a fresh, timeless appeal for today's readers.

The further adventures of the Moffat family in which seven-year-old Rufus attempts to rescue the family from financial distress.

    Hilarious tale of Rufus and the Moffatt family

    I've read all the Moffatt books, but Rufus made me laugh the most! He was probably the funniest of all the Moffatts, and he definitely made me want to find out what he would do next...Perfect ending to a great series of childrens books!
