Herbert is a fun-loving boy who has the best of intentions but is usually getting into trouble doing something or other. His Uncle Horace is always there to help bail him and his family out of trouble. Herbert usually does things to excess, with his family egging him on, since his mother told him that discouraging children is a bad idea! Truly the epitome/parody of baby boomers but really fun for kids. Short stories include, "Herbert's Can Collection," "Herbert's Remarkable Improvement," "Herbert's Reward," "Herbert's Wild Animals," "Herbert's Desert Island," "Herbert's Club," "Herbert's Chemistry Set," "Herbert's Newspaper," "Herbert's Earnings." This book can safely be considered "old school" and is appropriate for those who well... are pretty much fed up with leftist storytelling. These are fun books. Be aware that standards for English have changed since 1942! The occasional run-on sentence or so may leave you rewording sentences slightly as you read this book to your kids. But it's okay. Your kids will neither turn into mutants or bad orators as a result of reading this book. I read this book to my six year old kids and they loved it. I read it myself when I was maybe in third or fourth grade. This book is very appropriate for conservatives and others who do not want a political/social agenda affecting their kids.
