Arthur Rasby is ten years old and having the worst summer of his life. His parents dont listen to him, so he writes everything down — everything thats real — in his journal. But when he goes to stay with his Great-Aunt Elda and Great-Uncle Wrisby on their farm, his world is turned upside down. For the first time Arthur wonders whats real and whats not.
His aunt and uncle do things Arthurs parents would never do — like climbing out windows to sit in trees, singing to their pet pig, and sWhat You Know First; Painting the Wind; Bittle; Who Loves Me?; Once I Ate a Pie; I Didnt Do It; Before You Came; and Cat Talk, several of which she cowrote with her daughter, Emily. She lives with her husband and two border terriers in Williamsburg, Massachusetts.
