About the Author:

Anne Lindbergh, the daughter of Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh and sister of Reeve Lindbergh, grew up in a house filled with books and was encouraged in her writing of stories and poems at an early age. The author of numerous acclaimed novels for young readers, Anne Lindbergh died in 1993. She will long be remembered as, in the words of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, a writer "of literary grace and a mesmerizing storyteller."

From Publishers Weekly:

Jeremiah Jenkins was last heard from in The People of Pineapple Place, about a mobile, invisible street inhabited by people who never grow old. Now Jeremiah is tired of being nine years old and a fourth grader. When he meets and befriends an ordinary girl, Ruby, he sets in motion events that could alter Pineapple Place forever. The logic of the story is flawless as Lindbergh gracefully explains away magical occurrences and surprising developments. As for the folk of Pineapple Place (who bore poor Jeremiah), they will intrigue and charm the most skeptical of readers, and their actions seem to point, handily, to more immortal adventures. Ages 8-12.
