Homer is Great!
I may be prejudiced, but I adore all Robert McCloskey's stuff! This one is just as good! It is quite imaginative. In fact, some of the 'Uncle Hercules' stories are a little over my kids heads (ages 3-7) because they don't understand that he is 'stretching the truth'. They still enjoy it though. And I love reading it to them. Great plots, great artwork, lots of fun. What I consider 'classic' literature!
