Praise For Araboolies of Liberty Street

"The General and Mrs. Pinch rule the residents of Liberty Street, prohibiting all laughter, activity, and games . . . Then the Araboolies move in . . . Life becomes chaotic, exciting, wonderul, and fun -- until the General calls in the army . . . Thought-provoking." --Starred, Booklist
