okay soooo I'm actually obsessed with Stickler now - I love his joy for the little things and how he just so fully embraces the beauty of the world :3

I've read many of Lane Smith's books, they always bring a smile. He is an author with an incredible sense of humor.

The family consists of Mr. Hocky, Mrs. Hocky, a Baby Hocky, Henry and Holly Hocky and then Newton the dog.
The caractures of the Hocky family immediately brought a smile as the Hocky family moves out of the city and into the counry via a big yellow truck as we learn the new house is actually an OLD house where if it rains outside, it surely can and will rain inside.

We learn the same words in the city have a much different meaning in the country wherein a rattle can be for a baby, or might be a rattle snake in the country, and city words for such as milk represent a carton purchased at the store, and in the country milk is obtained by the actual cow.

In the city, you awaken by an alarm clock, in the country it is the rooster's loud 5:30 a.m. loud cock-a doodle-dooooo.
The neighbor in the country is a very few man with a pitchfork who happens to own many animals.
Even the leaves in the city do not fly with the wind as they do in the country.

Setting the atmosphere of the country, the author then shows the many things to do and to see that were never observed in the city As Henry Hocky fills a bird feeder with lots of seeds, only to watch a very large group of squirrels gobble every single one.
There is poison ivy in the coutry as well as county fairs with very large tomatoes on display.

There are a host of other changes that represent change. the country such as chili dinners, butterflies, rabbits that eat everything in the garden, plentiful leaves, and those always plentiful squirrels for which Henry Hocky builds a complicated contraption to keep them out of the food. And there are stinky skunkys tha baby Hocky discovers.

Laugh out loud depictions of the things that bring prizes at the county fair, including an award for the large contraption buiolt to keep the squirrels out of the feeders.

The author ends by letting the reader know that yes, the Hocky family will adapt and stay in the country. I very much enjoy the way in which this author makes the world upside down funny with belly-laughing images that match a description of everyday occurrences.

Lane Smith did it again -- he took a simple object and rendered it funny, as family that finds country life incredily strangely interesting moves from a boring city.
Some readers might think the author is making a parody of country life and that the Hocky's are finding country Hookey. For some this may be true, for me -- Not true, Lane Smith's brilliant mind can take a simple subject and render it tremendously funny.

I'm going to check my list of the books I read and immediately add, and read those I haven't.

It's not cool to be anti-technology, Lane. There is room in the world for screens and paper. It's also not cool to have your hero call his rival a "jackass" in a book that's supposedly for children. I have a feeling this book was actually written for people just like me (adults who love books hard), and yet it rubbed me the wrong way. My favorite part was the passage from [b:Treasure Island|295|Treasure Island|Robert Louis Stevenson||3077988].

This may go over the head of most preschoolers, but it's funny and it introduces some terms that kids will probably overhear on CNN. That Lane Smith always cracks me up.
