Item Description...
In his first chapter book, a popular children's author recalls the childhood adventures he had in the late 1930s when his family built their house at 26 Fairmount Avenue, from his hilarious reaction to Disney's Snow White to his first day of school. Newbery Honor Book. Reissue.

Publishers Description
Tomie's family starts building their new house at 26 Fairmount Avenue in 1938, just as a hurricane hits town, starting off a busy, crazy year. Tomie has many adventures all his own, including eating chocolate with his Nana Upstairs, only to find out--the hard way--that they have eaten chocolate laxative. He tries to skip kindergarten when he finds out he won't learn to read until first grade. "I'll be back next year," he says. When Tomie goes to see Snow White, he creates another sensation. Tomie dePaola's childhood memories are hilarious, and his charming illustrations are sure to please.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Great Start to a Series  Nov 3, 2007
This is the story of young Tomie as he waits for his new house to be built. The narrative is easy and light, with fun stories told about school, building a new house, family, and grandparents.

This is a great book for upper elementary students to read and a great book for adults to read to younger students.
Autobiography of the best sort  May 9, 2007
26 Fairmount Avenue (Newbery Honor Book, 2000)I am honored to write a review for this first book about Tomie dePaola's life. I have always admired his other works and now I have a new reason to respect him. This autobiography is a short chapter book written for children by an author who writes for children. How appropriate is that? So many times we parents are asked to find autobiographies for our kids to read but there are none that are at a child's reading level, let alone appropriate for children to read. We have to content ourselves with watered down biographical writing. Not so with "26 Fairmount Avenue." Welcome to the world of Tomie who remembers the things of life that kids remember and perhaps you will remember as well.
Fun, very enjoyable.  Mar 16, 2006
My son was sick for a few days while the rest of the class was reading this book at school, and we needed to have this book to help keep him up on class and understand what was going on in the story. The book wasn't available anywhere locally, so we ordered from this site, and it got here QUICKLY! We were able to get him caught up on his work, and we could also explain the story in a better one-on-one setting than any classroom could do, and he did well.

I have to say, the story was also enjoyable for a parent, as it brought back a lot of memories from my childhood. Although I never lived where the story took place, and we didn't have grandparents in the house with us (as is the case in the story), there were a lot of fun perspectives from a child's point of view. Tomie dePaola has a very good writing style, and the artwork is fun, too. I recommend the book for anyone who enjoys childrens' books - especially those books about life in 1938. It would be a superb grandparent-to-grandchild book.
first biography  Oct 31, 2002
In reading this book to my first grade class, Tomie always left them wanting to know more about his life. This first book in the 26 Fairmount Avenue series takes Tomie from the summer before kindergarten through his first year at his brothers "big" school. The story focuses on experiences dealing with moving in to a new house and neighborhood, having his teacher mispronounce his name, starting tap dancing lessons and many other events that shape his beginnings at his new life at 26 Fairmount Avenue. My students enjoyed every page of this new series, cover to cover and ended up checking out the book at the library all year! We continued to read the next four books throughout the year and continue to discuss them when we see each other around school. This new beginning biography series is a must have for every primary grade classroom.
Swim Over Here And Read This Book  May 8, 2002
26 Fairmount Avenue
By Tomie Depaola

Do you ever think that Tomie's house could get picked up in a hurricane just like in the Wizard of Oz? When Tomie was 5 years old his house was picked up by a hurricane. So then Tomie had to move to 26 Fairmount Avenue. Tomie's house was going to be on a new street. But workers came and made the street very deep so it looks like it was on a hill. Tomie's mom started to cry. Finally New Years Eve came and some of Tomie's friends came over for the celebration. The excitement doesn't end there.

I like this book because it is really relaxing and funny. The pictures are very detailed and the writing really keeps you interested.

The author taught me a lesson that you just have to be patient and something might come to you. Remember this book is a Newbery Honor book.
