About this title


The kids ignore the intrusive, eccentric Mr. Knocky, who tells weird stories and flaps his arms like a duck, until he is hurt in a snowball fight and the gang begins to appreciate what he has to say.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-Illustrations by the noted cartoonist enliven this unusual intergenerational story. The snow flies as children head out to sled and play in "Deep Dene." It's their perfect hangout in all seasons-except for Mr. Knocky, who drives them bananas with his rambling stories and weird actions. As the elderly man cavorts and regales the bored children with his tales, he is inadvertently caught in the middle of a snowball fight and knocked unconscious by a direct hit. The kids are terrified that they've killed him and beg him to get up, and when Mr. Knocky sits up to begin sharing his goofy stories, they take the time to listen and begin to realize that the man is something special-in fact, he's downright hilarious. From then on, the old gent is a regular and well-loved fixture when the gang visits Deep Dene. A lighthearted, amusing look at children learning to relate to an older adult, this could be used by teachers and guidance counselors to begin a discussion about the important place every individual holds.
