About this title


Now an old man, Artie enjoys sitting on his front porch and telling the neighborhood children about his pony Jack, his dog Skipper, and his trip with a barnstormer when he was a boy

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2?As an old man, Artie sits on his front porch and talks to the neighborhood children. They ask him questions about "when he was little," and he is glad to oblige. He tells them about the early automobiles that were always breaking down and needed fixing at his father's garage; about the taste of the potato chips that his mother made and sold at her little roadside stand, along with her other wonderful foods; and about the best present he ever got? "a pony tied to the Christmas tree." He tells them about his saddest memory?the death of his little sister?and about his best memory?the day he saw his first biplane, flown by stunt pilots called "barnstormers," and talked one of them into giving him a ride. It was then he decided to become a pilot. Artie, the author explains, was a real friend and next door neighbor of hers. Faded, sepia-toned old photographs of Artie as a young boy are shown in endpapers, adding authenticity to his reminiscences. The illustrations are done in Allen's recognizable style and use pastels on brown paper, giving a slightly hazy, distant look to the pictures, suiting the text perfectly. Together with the photographs, they effectively convey the feeling of a time gone by. The story is told in a spare, easy conversational style that is good for reading aloud; and the adults who do the reading have a fine opportunity to share their own memories.?Virginia Golodetz, St. Michael's College, Winooski, VT
