Richard Peck Read-a-Likes

December 22, 2006

If you or your children have enjoyed Richard Peck’s books such as this year’s “Here Lies The Librarian” or the earlier “Fair Weather”, “A Long Way From Chicago” or “A Year Down Yonder” then you might want to try some of these other books. They too, have quirky characters, farcical situations and a well-defined down-home humor. Try Betty MacDonald’s “The Egg And I”; Robert Ruark’s “The Old Man And The Boy”; “Cold Sassy Tree” by Olive Ann Banks and the “Ruby Holler” series by Sharon Creech.
