Read full description of the books Chancy and the Grand Rascal:This is a fun story, but it's definitely a children's story. There are certain stories written for children that can be just as interesting for adults, but I didn't quite feel the same with this book. I want to emphasize that this is still a good story, but there was something it lacked to give it the extra oomph to grab my full attention. I think the main problem is that uncle Will is able to solve every problem they come across with complete and utter ease. This makes for a fun, fantastical adventure, but it takes away any tension that would have otherwise existed. It gets 4 stars for being so fun, and I think children will greatly enjoy it, but for adults I'd give it 3 stars.
Read information about the authorAs a children's book author Sid Fleischman felt a special obligation to his readers. "The books we enjoy as children stay with us forever -- they have a special impact. Paragraph after paragraph and page after page, the author must deliver his or her best work." With almost 60 books to his credit, some of which have been made into motion pictures, Sid Fleischman can be assured that his work will make a special impact.
Sid Fleischman wrote his books at a huge table cluttered with projects: story ideas, library books, research, letters, notes, pens, pencils, and a computer. He lived in an old-fashioned, two-story house full of creaks and character, and enjoys hearing the sound of the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Fleischman passed away after a battle with cancer on March 17, 2010, the day after his ninetieth birthday.
He was the father of Newbery Medal winning writer and poet Paul Fleischman, author of Joyful Noise; they are the only father and son to receive Newbery awards.
