Boone Barnaby comes of age that school year, as several town buildings burn down and the team comes up with an ingenious fundraiser. He is truly an unrecognized talent. I have had the pleasure of listening to some of his free podcasts and he has wonderful voice for narration.

Adventures of Boone Barnaby is a classic for boys and girls alike. Boone and his friends trying to raise money for the their soccer team to go to the champianship by holding a Trashathon was the funniest part. The quick whit of the characters and the creative twist of events left my class wondering if it was wrong to think unkindly about the old miser in the story. A great tool for discussions about fairness, truth

These books take me back to the world I grew up in. Not the material world--the ethical world. I knew for sure that my parents would die for me, and it was a great shock for me to learn in about ninth grade that some kids had parents who didn't even love them or spend time teaching them about life. Kids need books that are interesting and amusing but also teach about basic decency and "house rules" based on unquestioned assumptions that you do your best not to hurt anyone and to help even those who don't seem very worthy. I think this author consciously crafts his story and characters to support the influence of good parents fighting against the egoistic and violent messages of our culture and to help other kids to aspire to rise above their circumstances and to feel good about themselves.

Set in 90's northern California, over the "hill" yet vaguely linked to Sillicon Valley, this story of three school boys in a hick town holds the reader's interest--even if you are only kids at heart. The plot revolves loosely around the efforts of the soccer team to earn money for a trip to Australia, while on the serious side, adults cope with the issue of recurring arson.
The conscientious author revives the world of the 60's for his young audience--a world of hippies, drugs, anti-war protest and civil disobedience. One wonders if he is reliving his own frustrated teenage/college years, or making sure that the lessons of that turbulent era will not be forgotten or ignored
by another generation of young thinkers, for these three boys
want answers and reasons for general world order.
Boone Barnaby comes of age that school year, as several town buildings burn down and the team comes up with an ingenious fundraiser. But when he needs to escape his problems, his favorite perch proves a high branch in a tall redwood, where he can overlook the distant valley, his own little town and even the local prison. And ponder why little birds fly in flocks...But what do the mighty redwoods and the mini dragonfly have in common?
Boone's underprivileged best pal, Danny, often challenges the traditional view of honesty with his selfish coping mechanism. Then the new kid, Babcock, is included in their tight friendship-providing new opportunities for lessons in loyalty. Struggling for decreasing parental surveillance, the young protagonist evaluates the actions of his father in the past, as well as his attitudes in the present. He struggles to understand the erratic and misanthropic behavior of both the town miser and the town drunk. How can a kid justify doing right in a world gone wrong, where few adults seem to play by the rules? Both boys learn to respect Babcock's House Rules, but how can they be modified for practical life in the big world? An interesting story despite the threads of many themes packaged along with it.
