Here We All Are

By Tomie DePaola, 1934-

In a wonderfully warm and funny sequel to 26 Fairmount Avenue, Tomie takes us back into his childhood home as he helps the family get ready for the new baby. Along the way are funny school experiences such as "revenge" at not getting to play Peter Rabbit in the school play because he talks too much, becoming a star at Miss Leah's Dance School, having to eat Nana Fall-River's "sewer-pipe" macaroni, and missing his mom when she goes to the hospital to have the baby. Favorite characters from 26 Fairmount Avenue as well as from his "autobiographical" picture books, Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs, The Baby Sister and Tom make appearances here. Another winning chapter book.

Reviews for 26 Fairmount Avenue:
