A Year Down Yonder book. Richard Peck's ability to make his teen girl narrator real, to evoke cash-strapped Grandma Dowdel's strength of character and attention to the personal dignity of the least of her neighbors make you wish she were YOUR Grandma, and that there were more stories of her and her grandchildren.

The best book I've read in years. I bought the set of three about Grandma Dowdel for gifts for my sisters and close friends and they agree with me. Even though they are for junior high aged kids, we are all enjoying them. They are passing them around to their friends also... if you want to read a book that will make you laugh out loud I highly recommend these three books ... Richard Peck is a great author!!!!
Very Old Chap
The book is just as entertaining today as it was when I was nine. :) The adventures of Grandma Dowdel are astoundingly hilarious and it paints a picture of life during the Great Depression. I recommend it those who are already fans of Richard Peck's works, or those who want to try his work for the first time. Great for readers of all ages.
I even got a new copy from Amazon for less than $10. I hope you enjoy a copy should you decide to buy one.
Wonderful story. Our family never gets tired of hearing this on road-trips . . .I think its been 10 years at least and we probably have heard it at least 20 times. It's read/performed by Lois Smith and she does a wonderful job. We have tried to listen to the other Richard Peck stories, but the reader was very annoying to listen too.
The book is about life during the depression and recession years. The protagonist , Mary Alice, is 15 and needs to leave her parents in Chicago and move to her grandma's house in a little town.

She grows into adulthood with her grandma.

Grandma has a personal and unsuspecting way to solve different situations. The author did a very good job in describing the dynamics of the characters and keeps the reader's attention constant to the plot.

The author illustrates and solves problems through short shores. The actions are unexpected and many times funny. All the plots in the book keep the attention of the reader.

The story gives opportunities for the reader to analyze many different relationships and to think about life, losses, self defense, helpfulness and love.

The book is intended for teenaged but I recommend it also for adults. This book shows how people's problems can be solved in different ways.
I purchased this book with my mother in mind who grew up in Sunfield, IL. during the depression. It's the story of a young city girl who goes to live with her eccentric grandmother in southern Illinois when times get tough for her parents up in Chicago. The adventures of grand daughter and grandmother are delightful! The grandmother is a real character who makes a habit out of "borrowing" pecans in the middle of the night from a neighbor. Filled with small town humor, you become totally immersed in this young girls life as she grows into a young woman. It also touched me because at the time I purchased the book, we--along with the rest of the country were going through financial hardships of our own. It helped me to face those hardships with hope and humor. Loved the book.
If you need a real, honest to goodness laugh, read A Year Down Yonder. I'm 56 and never too old for fun kiddie lit. This story and it's companion story -- a Long Way from Chicago are charming, funny reads that are sure to bring a smile to your face and a laugh to your day. I love the stories about Grandma. She is some kind of amazing old gal. I wish I'd had a grandma just like her. I read these stories to my kids -- and I hope to one day read them to my grandkids. I remember hearing my boys laughing as we'd read them at bedtime. Priceless.
I love this book and also it's companion book "A long way from Chicago", I think is the name. They are so funny and yet also teach about kindness, not judging, and many other values that seem to be missing in today's world.
This was such a good book and it was even a school book!! This is the second book in the series though. Both books are really good. The First book is called "A Long Way From Chicago." I really recommend that you read this book. I enjoyed reading it a lot!!
