Each year during the Great Depression, a brother and sister travel from their home in Chicago to a small Illinois town to visit their grandmother for the summer. A Long Way from Chicago tells of eight of those summers. In the vein of Mark Twain, Richard Peck has created a town-and a grandmother-larger than life, filled with outrageous humor and marked by oddball adventures. "Warmly nostalgic, beautifully written, humorous, and full of thought-provoking interpersonal relationships."-Children's Literature
