Appearances are deceiving. Would you choose a sparkling blue swimming pool or a mud-banked swimming hole, a new bicycle or a creaking one, slick plans for wealth or enduring friendships? What does the Happy Family Handbook say? When new neighbors arrive on Primrose Drive, the changes and misunderstandings are many. Helen Lederer moves easily through the fast-paced action of Wallace's story. She plots and schemes as well as she voices childlike pleasure. As Claude and Pearl befriend Ruby and Simon, the children delight in each other and in bringing their parents together. In the grand family finale, Lederer's quickening pace and tone of suspense add to the satisfaction. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
