Opinion

From Library Staff

Grandma Dowdel is not a good influence--and that's one good reason why Joey likes visiting her. Each August, from 1929 to 1935, he and his younger sister travel by train from Al Capone's Chicago to spend a week with Grandma in her scrappy small Illinois town.
(4th -6th graders)

I it a very good book for kids. It is very informal about the characters which really made you feel like you are in the book which is great.
