    1. I did not care for most animal stories when I was a child, and the human aspect of this would have been irrelevant to me. Other children might like it more. I do like it now. And it does not feel, omg, almost 7 decades old. I do recommend it.Now, when I'm on my own, will I relish the peace and quiet? Or will I wish that neighbor children and critters would invade and make my life interesting?


    2. My, this was odd. I saw this on a list of children's books reviewed in the Atlantic Monthly and I know it's a Newbery honor book. The quick run-down is that an older man retires, or maybe just quits, I'm not sure there's a difference, and builds himself a cute little house nestled up to a giant Redwood. The house is like a character in the book, and it's great. A+ for the house.The other very strong point, and it makes you get why we're in Newbery league, is the way the woods are described -- it [...]


    3. I read this book aloud with my daughters. It is a 1950 Newbery Honor Book.Upon his retirement, Jerome Kildee builds a house under a giant redwood tree in the wilderness surrounded by 100 acres of woods and hillside. Although his intention was to remain reclusive, he opens both his home and his heart to his woodland friends which include raccoons, skunks, mice, rats, and even a deer. His home is between two feuding neighbours: the Eppys and the Cabots. When Jerome befriends Emma Lou Eppy it pique [...]


    4. Enjoyable easy read about the love of animals despite all the inconveniences they present and peoples changes in attitudes. I really enjoyed reading this and look forward to more from this author.


    5. I wish that I'd stumbled across this book when the kids were younger. I have one niece in particular who would have been enchanted by the antics of Jerome's raccoons and squirrels. (Do any of the newer books for young adults have an adult as the main character?)Here, nature takes center stage, right along with Jerome and Emma Lou. By example, the author shows how to appreciate the natural world without destroying it.The main misconception is that raccoons can be easily picked up. If I hadn't had [...]


    6. This was a sweet, fun read aloud for my children and me. We all enjoyed the story of a little old retired man, Jerome, who has built an interesting house against a giant redwood in Northern California. He ends up sharing his house with a family of Raccoons, and a family of Skunks. He retired to become a philosopher, to live a quiet life and not have to do anything. But once he makes friends with Emma Lou, nothing is ever as quiet. First there is the "Feud" Emma Lou is having with Jerome's other [...]


    7. This book was so much fun! We weren’t sure about it at the beginning, but we ended up loving the story about Mr Kildee and his animal friends. The ending was very abrupt, though. We would have liked to see that developed a little more.


    8. A lot of descriptive text that I thought would cause my kids (1st and 2nd grade) to lose interest/attention, but they followed along as I read aloud and were engaged. It was a neat look at a simpler way of living rich and full life can be without much "stuff." Overall, a good story!





    9. This was a very sweet story, and all of my kids liked it. The descriptions of the woods and the animals delighted my younger children especially!


    10. I had this book on my to-read list for a while because one of my favorite English teachers recommended it. And I have to say, for the most part, it did not disappoint. It's quaint and quiet, featuring charming descriptions of animals like Old Grouch the raccoon and Papa and Mama skunk (all of these creatures are personified to the extent that they have marital spats). Emma Lou Eppy is also a gem of a character. She's got spunk and is quite the tomboy. I enjoyed her interactions with Donald Cabot [...]


    11. I just happened to notice the cover of this book at the library and picked it up. Now, having read it, I'm very surprised I'd never run into it before!I very much enjoyed this story of Jerome, who builds a tiny house against a redwood tree. He goes to the forest to live alone, but ends up making many (many) friends, mostly racoons, skunks, a few humans, and some others.I feel you should know going in that there are some very sad moments where creatures die. They're handled thoughtfully.The book [...]


    12. I thought that it was a cute and fun book.The story is of an old retired stone-mason. He decided to build a shack on the side of a Redwood tree on some property he owned in the hills. He wanted to be a hermit and not have to do or think about anything. Along comes a girl, and eventually her arch-nemesis who is a boy as well, and helps the old man to have a more enjoyable life. And they start adopting more animals than they know what to do with.Well, it's a fun book but not too enlightening. I fo [...]


    13. Another recently re-read, the story of Jerome Kildee, a stoneworker who retires to a redwood forest and builds a little cabin right up against a gigantic tree. Soon the locals discover that he is a nice guy, and willing to share his space--but the locals aren't people, they are raccoons and little spotted skunks, and they move right in! Jerome befriends Emma Lou Eppy, the only girl in a family of older brothers, and she is entranced by Jerome's lifestyle and his animals. The wonderfully sweet il [...]


    14. The minute I started reading this book I thought "my boys (4, and 9) would enjoy this". I started reading it to them and they love it. However, my oldest daughter (12, Harry Potter fan) had the comment one night after I finished reading, "That book is intriguing but I don't get the point". I had to laugh. That about sums it up. This isn't a story that keeps you up late at night reading but one can't help wondering how the raccoon/skunk issue will play out. I really enjoyed the book and I thought [...]


    15. Read the full review here: newberyandbeyond/newbery-rIn this book, a man decides to escape his former life by building a home in the midst of the redwood forest. He then makes friends with a slew of animals, including a family of skunks, a pair of raccoons, some squirrels, and many other woodland creatures, as well as a preteen girl. The girl and the old man work together to raise the animals and make them comfortable, even as their families continue to grow.It’s a cute idea, and the illustrat [...]


    16. I found the book slow and a little boring. It's kind of cute, but unrealistic about the bugs and mess that that many animals in a house would cause. The idea of the young girl toting a gun around the woods threatening to shoot the neighbor boy was offensive and came off weird in our culture (the book was published in 1949). I can see why some people would like it, but to me there's way more books about 1) reclusive people who learn to love, 2) people who love animals or 3) to kids who learn to b [...]


    17. Let me start off by saying that my son brought this book to me asking me to read it because he had loved it. So, with that in mind, I'll tell you that I loved it too. Such a cute little story. Unrealistic? (as I've seen mentioned by some reviewers) Of course! How many children's books can you list that are unrealistic? I'd be willing to bet more than the realistic ones. Jerome Kildee didn't like people because he had always dealt with grieving people. It took moving into the center of 100 acres [...]


    18. First of all, I want to live in Jerome's house for a week or two (maybe without the animal guests). The description of it is delightful and seems like a terrific vacation spot.I read this sweet, slower-paced story to my boys when they were younger and now again to my 5 year-old daughter. She enjoyed it much more than the boys did -- wanting to know if there was a sequel.


    19. I read this book out loud to the boys a long time ago and have been trying to find it again. I remember it being a very funny story about a man who is trying to "escape" but ends up having to deal with a lot of animals who are intruding on his quiet serenity.


    20. Jerome builds a house in the woods, and though he is a solitary kind of man, he takes in raccoons, skunks and then 2 feuding children. Can they all get along together, and what do you do when the animals start producing multiple young?A Newbery Honor book from 1950, it was good but not "wow."


    21. This is a funny little book about a man who wants to live by himself and become a hermit and a philosopher. But instead he has to learn how to live with the wouldland animals he's become friends with. It's a cute story and an easy read.


    22. This book was one of the best Newbery Books (Honor) that I have read up to this point. It was unique, it was delightful, it was adorable. I don't remember which one won this year but I'll be interested to see if it really deserved it over this gem.


    23. It has been a while since I have read this, but it was great. My children loved this book, I read it aloud to them. A cantankerous old man gets his heart melted by the antics of his pet wild animals!



    24. A darling book that centers around creatures living with them and enjoying them. This is just the sort of thing that my creature lovers enjoy hearing read aloud.
