I thought the boys would especially love the donut chapter, but we got that far and they weren't interested in reading further. ( )

How can a boy and his pet skunk be any match for a four-man team of robbers that comes to the town of Centerburg? It's one thing to read about the mighty Super-Duper in 10¢ superhero comics, but what's it like to meet the Super-Duper in person? And what do you do when an automatic doughnut machine just won't stop making doughnuts? Young Homer may have something to say about all of this and more in Homer Price by author Robert McCloskey.

I like to revisit some books I enjoyed back in my childhood to see (or remember) what it was about them that "got" me. While reading about Homer's adventures again after all these years didn't give me the same wonder and level of pleasure that I still feel when I read about Beverly Cleary's Ramona Quimby, I had fun going back through these old-fashioned tales.

This read is intentionally outrageous in places while remaining comfortable and entertaining. I had to smile at the book's nod to the modern American woman—the references to her place in business and public life and the right for her to make up her own mind in romantic matters. And the dilemma concerning the Street Sign Putter Uppers Union got an eyebrow-raise from me even as I chuckled.

The book has a little stuff related to people of color that, while presented in a positive spirit, wouldn't exactly fly today. But I won't pick all of that apart, since some of it's due to American history that can't be erased, and in this middle grade read that's silly overall, the town's brown members aren't singled out to be "the silly ones" or negative figures.

Even as I did some inward cringing, and I can't say this book would be on my list of recommendations for children today, it all gave me something worth remembering about kid lit from three quarters of a century ago. ( )
