Neville by Norton Juster

Remember "The Phantom Tollbooth?"  This is a children's picture book by the same author.  It's good, too.

Schwartz & Wade Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can acquire a copy at your local bookstore.

He doesn't want to move.  He likes where he lives now.  Why move to a new block, a new house, and a place where he knows no one?  How's he going to make friends?

The illustrations are done by G. Brian Karas and look a bit old fashioned, which fits well with the simple story.

This is an entertaining look at how a small boy uses a unique technique for finding new friends.  It made me smile and I'm sure your children will, too.

Check it out at your local bookstore or online.  It would be a great book for a young one to read aloud to you; they can shout!

Happy reading.
