We enjoy the McBroom series by Sid Fleischman a great deal. I never read these gems as a child, and didn't even discover them for my children until a few years ago. I happened upon one or two at our monthly library book sale. Why the library is shedding these books, I'll never understand. Of the ten in the series, we have eight. The other two are on my Paperback Swap wishlist. There are some of them available right now.
Here's a list of all the McBroom Family Adventures for all you collectors:
You can thank me later. I hope you enjoy Mr. McBroom and his family as much as we do!
