Journey from Peppermint Street Author:Meindert DeJong, Emily Arnold McCully (Illustrator) Chronicles the occurrences on a young boy's journey to visit an aunt and how these events affect his return journey and arrival at his home on Peppermint Street.
Meindert DeJong's books are really a treat. If you haven't read any start with Wheel at the School, or Far Out the Long Canal. Do try one of his books - great read alouds! This title is very sweet, too. I love the characters and the settings of his books. A master storyteller. 5 STAR!
