Funny Book!  May 25, 2011
by


This is a textbook that adults and children can enjoy. I like the way it you can still remember Lois Lowry wrote it while imagining something fun. The story was not at all predictable, and I was surprised by many events. The textbook itself is complete with all the vintage characters: the abandoned infant, the lonely benefactor, the capable nanny, the malevolent parents, and the four idiosyncratic children. I definitely recommend you pick this up and read it.






The Willoughbys: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

The Willoughby's—Timothy; his twin brothers, Barnaby A and Barnaby B; and their little sister, Jane—are old-fashioned children who adore old-fashioned adventures. Unfortunately, the Willoughby parents are not very fond of their children, and the truth is that the siblings are not too keen on their parents either.

Little do the Willoughby kids know that their neglectful mother and father are hatching an evil plan to get rid of them! Not to worry—these resourceful adventurers have a few plans of their own. But they have no idea what lies ahead in their quest to rid themselves of their ghastly parents and live happily ever after.

"The tone of this darkly dry pastiche is consistently witty, and it's chock-full of accessible parodic references to...classic children's texts...Lowry crafts a tidy plot."-The Bulletin,starred review
