Warm and sweet. This book is, in addition to being a story about Rufus Moffat and his siblings, a snapshot of America at the end of WWII. I enjoyed it. I do loathe Louis Slobodkin's illustrations, though. I had to not look at them as I read.

Rufus is a young 7 year old boy that is the youngest in the Moffat family. They live on a unique street and in the begging there is a war going on and the class tries to help. There are lots of problems in Rufus's life and he is fun to read about. Rufus Moffat needs to figure out how to deal with his own problems too. I like this book because I like reading about little kids and their life. It was not my favorite because I like mysteries better and tense books. I hope you will like it too.… (more)
