El senor Pato y la senora Pata saben que el Jardin Publico de Boston es el lugar perfecto para criar a su familia. Pero para unos patitos recien salidos del cascaron no es lugar seguro. La islita del rio Charles parece ideal, y la senora Pata en el Jardin, su nuevo hogar. Pero ella no contaba con tener que atravesar con sus pequenos patitos las calles de Boston, con todo su trafico!
La historia, contada en detalle con gracia y bellamente ilustrada, de estos patitos que van de un lado a otro, se ha ganado el corazon de generaciones de lectores. Premiada en 1941 con la Medalla Caldecott como "El libro ilustrado para ninos mas distinguido del ano," ha sido desde entonces lectura favorita de millones de lectores, tanto ninos como adultos.
Henry Reed keeps a journal of his summer activities which include setting up a research firm and embarking on a series of usually profitable projects with the aid of his ally and neighbor Midge.
Six episodes in the life of Homer Price including one in which he and his pet skunk capture four bandits and another about a donut machine on the rampage.
Back in Grover's Corners, N.J., for the summer, Henry and his partner Midge establish a baby sitting service and find a disappearing child and a peacock among their charges.
It's not that the folks in Centerburg are especially nosy; it's just that in a small town everyone seems to know everything. But Homer Price does know more about what's going on than anyone, because he's usually in the middle of things...And whenever there's a problem Homer puts everything aright with his own common sense and ingenuity - like the time Uncle Heracles jumped out of his clothes and landed in another state, or a slick salesman duped the whole town, or the whole town started speaking in jingles. Nothing fazes Homer Price!
