This Newbery Honor Winner and National Book Award Finalist is an unforgettable up to date classic and features the debut of the larger-than-life Grandma Dowdel
 
What happens when Joey and his sister, Mary Alice—two city slickers from Chicago—make their annual summer visits to Grandma Dowdel’s seemingly sleepy Illinois town?
August 1929: They see their first corpse, and he is not resting easy.
August 1930: The Cowgill boys terrorize the town, and Grandma fights back.
August 1931: Joey and Mary Alice assist Grandma trespass, poach, catch the sheriff in his underwear, and feed the hungry
all in someday.
 
And there is more, as Joey and Mary Alice make seven summer trips to Grandma’s—each and every one funnier than the year before—in self-contained chapters that readers can enjoy as short stories or take together for a rip-roaringly good novel. Within the tradition of American humorists from Mark Twain to Flannery O’Connor, popular creator Richard Peck has created a memorable world filled with characters who, like Grandma herself, are larger than life and twice as entertaining.
