The strength of family love triumphs in this adventurous third title of the best-selling Blossom Family series by Newbery Medal-winning author Betsy Byars. Junior Blossom has created the most spectacular invention of all time: a homemade UFO. The Green Phantom took all of the garbage bags and Day-Glo paint Junior could find, but now it requires one more very special ingredient. Although Junior needs help, his family seems too busy to care about him. Then when Pap and his dog, Mud, don't come home from town, the Blossoms are pulled apart even farther. Are Pap and Mud in serious trouble? Can a Blossom promise bring everyone back together again?

No one has noticed Junior Blossom's new invention, even though Junior can plainly see that it's marvelous. He calls it the Green Phantom and it's almost finished--except for the final secret ingredient.
The whole family make a Blossom promise to ensure Junior's Green Phantom is a big success, and Junior knows a blossom promise can never be broken. When the Green Phantom is ready, everyone gathers to cheer Junior on, except for two people: Pap, his grandfather, who has been missing, and Mom, who is at home worried and waiting near the phone. Pap is old, and his knees are weak--where can he be?
In The Blossoms And The Green Phantom, the third book of Betsy Byars's quartet, this unforgettable family is as lovable and unpredictable as ever.About the Author:
