Centerburg Tales: More Adventures of Homer Price

Fazes Homer Price Ragweeds taller than fire ladders music that sets a whole town dancing he solves these problems calmly and efficiently Homer Price is a boy with a good supply of common sense and ingenuityHomer's Grampa Hercules is a delightful old rascal and his extravagent reminiscences of his youth are the starting point of many of the episodes The chapter titles are as enticing as the chapters themsel OK this is a weird book It s a seuel to Homer Price but whereas that book as far as I remember was whimsical but ultimately not fantastical this one crosses the line into a couple of strange fairy tale like stories We start with tall tales told by Grampa Hercules many characters derive their names from classical mythology with no other discernible connection to their namesakes and the delight the kids take in them They re amusing though with some troublingly racist by 21st century standards anyway attitudes towards Native Americans but clearly tall tales told by Grampa we re not expected to believe them Then however we move into two further stories both of which are unabashedly fantastical but presented as real events One is about a guy who inherits seeds his crackpot inventor relative left him which turn out to grow giant ragweed Why anyone would want to develop giant ragweed remains unexplained though the resolution is at least amusing The next and final one is eve overtly fantastical a mysterious stanger puts an unnamed record in the juke box Anyone who hears the song literally can t stop singing it and dancing in an overtly fairy tale scenario The cure is implausible and there s no explanation for why the guy would have put the record in the juke box anyway Moderately entertaining but disjointed and perplexing Redeemed somewhat by McCloskey s expressive illustrations
