Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall 2008 Kids' List
“It's hard work, being a kid, so Brian decides to retire: no more school, violin lessons, soccer practice, or babysitting his little sister. He moves to the Happy Sunset Retirement Community in Florida and, at first, things are pretty cool. But after awhile he decides maybe his 'job' wasn't so bad after all. A seriously funny look at the challenges (and rewards) of being a kid.”
-- Marilyn, Book Ends, Winchester, MA


Description

"It's been a wonderful eight years, but I need a break."

At the Happy Sunset Retirement Community, there's Ethel, Myrtle, Harvey, and Tex. And then there's Brian. The retired kid. He's here to escape school, homework, and daily chores.

But retired living has its challenges, especially when you're sixty years younger than everybody else!
