    1. First sentence Ghosts Mercy, yes I can tell you a thing or three about ghosts As sure as my name s Josh McBroom a haunt came lurking about or wonderful one acre farm I don t know when that confounded dry bones first moved in with us, but I suspicion it was last winter An uncommon cold winter it was, too, though not so cold that an honest man would tell fibs about it Still, you had to be careful when you lit a match The flame would freeze and you had to wait for a thaw to blow it out.Premise plot [...]


    2. First, I have to do the yell Willjillhesterchesterpeterpollytimtommarylarry andlittleclarinda That s how farmer Josh McBroom shouts his eleven children into the house as they re playing on his amazingly rich one acre farm, where the soil is so rich they can grow two crops of tomatoes and a crop of carrots on the first day of planting.And now it s my goal as I pass these wonderful books this is the first of a series by Sid Fleischman on to my children that I perfect McBroom s yell so I can shout [...]


    3. This was so fun to read aloud to the family Add the Southern twang and it really makes the story come to life We laughed and laughed.


    4. Found this book in the spare bedroom Hadn t read it in years My first though waswilljillhesterchesterpeterpollytimtommarylarry and little Clarinda What a nice trip down memory lane of my childhood reading.


    5. I read this faithfully as a child in the 80 s No idea how my family ended up obtaining it, but it was there I looked at the pictures all the time as a child I bought it off its from 1971, so woo hoo for my students and promptly read it.Ugh.Not appropriate for my special needs class It makes little sense I mean, of course I get it, but its not my cup of tea I remember reading it in the winter as a kid and this book making me colder, if you can believe that I think it would be good for typical chi [...]



    6. These McBroom books are certainly fun, and this book introduces a second silly element to the farm beyond the unbelievable, fast growing soil A ghost Sort of It s just as fun as the others Many of the jokes may be lost on the younger set because of contextual clues, but I bet they d still enjoy a lot of em Could be a fun read aloud.


    7. I read this book to my ten year old son I thought this was a pretty neat book, but my son was left feeling a bit confused The author used a LOT of sayings not to be taken in a literal form The main character would say and I m not lying, so my son was a bit confused as to what the underlying messages were This is a story about a man and his wife and 11 children who live on a farm that can grow crops in just one day Of course with amazing land like that, the neighbor of McBroom is always trying to [...]


    8. My, oh my, it s been a cold winter this year Why it s been so cold we ve had to fire a gun up the chimney three times a day to blast through the smoke that froze It was so cold all the red barns in the county turned blue and sunlight took to freezing on the ground But the strangest thing happening on the McBroom farm is that a mimicking ghost has turned up It can do dead on imitations of everything from a crowing rooster to John Philip Sousa s marching band The McBroom series comes from the tall [...]


    9. This short story is a treat that can be read in one sitting As with most of Fleischman s works, it is a quick, light story that can be enjoyed by children but that has enough witty turns of phrase and uniqueness of concept that it will appeal to older audiences as well McBroom s Ghost starts out tall and gets taller as it goes, with Farmer McBroom telling his family s experiences with a ghost one winter The creative phrases of this tall tale are what really brings it to life, and Frankenberg s i [...]


    10. This book was one of my favorite books from when I was a child It is a strange and bizarre book with strange illustrations to match the story Most of the characters are tall and emaciated with very distinct noses Mr McBroom is a great narrator who is known for telling tall tales He tells a story of a ghost haunting their farm Looking back, it almost seems like it could be the basis for a short film by Tim Burton.


    11. I adore McBroom, so I ve read this to my son repeatedly since he was about 4 before that it was too long for him to like He giggles now at the age of 6 about the tall tale, but I think he ll enjoy it later.Who can forget the frozen march, or McBroom s call for Will Jill Hester Chester Peter Polly Tim Tom Mary Larry and Little Clarinda


    12. In this tall tale chapter book for transitional readers, it s a cold, cold winter on McBroom s one acre farm when a mimicking ghost starts to cause all sorts of trouble A humorous, fun, quick start to the Adventures of McBroom series.





    13. I liked it because they all thought it was a ghost but then they found it was Heck Jones weird hogs And another funny thing is that the sun froze to the ground it was so cold that winter.


    14. A wonderful and only slightly creepy tall tale set in the American heartland Fleischman is a marvelous storyteller, a national treasure.





    15. I loved it Another favorite from childhood I loved how he called his children to him Good old country folks with some tall tales to spin.


    16. this was one of my favorite books from childhood i have lost my copy but i m getting it from the library so i can relive this memory



    17. I absolutely love McBroom and his many adventures This is the first McBroom book I read As a result, I ve bought several .
