Synopsis: Rob and Soup set in motion a wild scheme to catch the eye of the Hollywood talent scout visiting their small Vermont town.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-7 Another of Peck's funny stories of growing up in a small Vermont town during the Depression. Soup and Rob have discovered that a Hollywood talent scout is coming to town to hold auditions, and that he will be accompanied by their Saturday matinee idol Fearless Ferguson, a silver screen cowboy reknowned for his daring. Soup dreams up a stunt guaranteed to impress Fearless and drafts Rob to help pull it off. Rob is never told exactly what it involvessomething to do with an ancient but odiferous garbage wagon loaded with hay and pulled by Soup's aunt's Siberian bearhounds. Of course there are a few mishaps and minor details that Soup overlooksthe wagon cannot be steered by the driver, the dogs are not in a proper harness and therefore are able to go in opposite directions, the talent scout donates a mountain of bubble bath to the women of the town, and the water tower has one very rickety leg. Meanwhile, the Bishop Zion Zeal and the Golden Prophets of Eternal Glory come to town determined to save the people from sinsuch as attending movies. This will be appreciated by Soup and Rob's current fans as well as by anyone looking for a funny story. Nancy P. Reeder, Heathwood Hall Episcopal School, Columbia, S.C.
