THE WILLOUGHBYS, by Lois Lowry.
We know we’re in the hands of a pro with Lois Lowry as the author. She has let her glorious sense of humor reign in this tale of 4 children, despised by their wicked parents, etc., etc. –every trite old trick in the storyteller’s book. This book is perfect for a child who reads a lot and will spot one cliché after another as they trot by--funny stuff on every page. If you know a good reader, or even a middling reader, with a sense of humor, PLEASE offer them this book.
