About this title


Addie's twelve-year-old brother, George, doesn't think anyone appreciates his musical talent, and when his father threatens to sell his trombone, George decides to run away from the family's prairie home.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-6-- George 12, loves playing the trombone, but his father sees his music as foolishness and constantly reminds him that someday he will inherit the family farm. After his youngest sister dies from the measles, the boy runs away to join a traveling theatrical troupe, finds out about life, and returns home, where he is welcomed by his father, all problems seemingly over. George, the younger brother of the heroine in Addie Across the Prairie (1986) , Addie's Dakota Winter (1989) , and Addie's Long Summer (1992, all Albert Whitman), is a pleasant young man with the usual questions about life and the need to find his own way. Set in the late 1880s, his story flows along nicely if predictably and the happy ending is satisfying. However, things happen too easily and with too little emotional content for the book to be a real page-turner. For purchase where there is a demand for historical fiction, and where the "Addie" titles are popular. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
