About the Author:

No Bio

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 A preposterous but satisfactory story about Walter, a 12-year-old boy who saves the fortune of three old timers. On General Britt's death, his greedy nephew claims the house and fortune, and immediately wants the General's three war buddies, Walter, and his mother (their housekeeper) to vacate. Walter first tries to reason with him, then attempts to tape a confession, and finally prepares an all-out attack. Although the house is destroyed in the process, a second copy of General Butterfingers' will is discovered, and the three friends are able to help other needy veterans. Written in action-packed dialogue and illustrated with cartoon-like drawings, General Butterfingers would be a good choice for hard-to-please elementary grade readers. Constance Allen, Tabor Academy, Marion, Mass.
