About this title


Old Man Trouble can really cause a stir in a household and turn things upside down for Aunt Nancy, but being more clever than he is, she can turn his bad doings into good situations, bringing defeat to Old Man Trouble's mischievous ways.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4?When sweet-faced old Aunt Nancy bends over the spring hole to see why there is no water and her good luck coin falls into it, it's a clear sign that Old Man Trouble is in the neighborhood. Then he appears in a long black hat and shiny black shoes, swinging a silver-headed walking stick. The woman cheerfully returns one salvo after another as Old Man Trouble tries to do his dirty work. Finally, she tricks the trickster into repairing her spring and sends him on his way. In the tradition of Appalachian Jack tales, this original story features a sharp-witted heroine. Set timelessly at Aunt Nancy's lonely log cabin, the full-color oil illustrations reveal a folksy Nancy and a surreal (and very toothy) Old Man. Effective use of light and angle varies the perspectives and adds energy to the narrative, and dark tones give way to lighter ones as Nancy triumphs. Silhouettelike black spot art creates visual bridges within the tale. Rhythmic language and interesting use of sound spice up the text. All told, here's a pleasing story for reading aloud, telling, or tickling the fancies of independent readers.?Carolyn Noah, Central Mass. Regional Library System, Worcester, MA
