LITTLE RHODY by Neta Holmes Frazier


Email this review


Homey, humorous family adventures in the days of the commode and the gas light take little Rhody Sperry, four brothers and sisters, a very Scotch mother, and a history teacher father from New York out to a new farm home in Michigan. Growing pains and happy times include spats between young Ned and Russell, Little Rhody's wish to be called Rhoda on her tenth birthday, a new puppy, tomboy Caryl's independence, and Anne's more sophisticated flirtations with a neighbor's son. A vein of seriousness deadens many would be funnier situations, but it's a fine family book for those recurrent aging problems.
