Illustrated by the author. 1948 Newbery Medal winner.

Cute story about a man who wanted peace and quiet and had a wild adventure instead!

...then he went to a Chinese food lunch and went home with someone else. Enjoy!

Update 2017: not positive this is the right cover image, but it might be...

Really charming. Intended for kids, but if imagination's important to you, you'll enjoy it no matter what age you are.

Received at TOC lunch at Ryan's. Muchas mahalos.

Fun story except for the blatant sexism. The children on Krakatoa built a wonderful invention, but the story later says that the boys had experience running it. What were the girls doing, wiping their brows? Baking them cookies? Funny how Yearning for Zion can make the news these days, but these girls, too, were brought to the island for only one thing!
