26 Fairmount Avenue

by Tomie DePaola

Published by Putnam, 1999
56 pages
ISBN: 0-399-23246-X

Ages 7 - 9

An autobiographical easy chapter book details dePaola's life in 1938 at age five when he and his family were preparing to move from an apartment building to a house that they were having built for them. Frequent black-and-white line drawings and short, episodic chapters will encourage newly independent readers, who are likely to enjoy this as a story, even if they aren't familiar with dePaola himself. But for those familiar with his picture books, this will be a happy step up into the next level of books and reading.
