FAIR WEATHER  by Richard Peck  2001. We haven't read this book. I was resisting it because I don't like some of his other books. BUT we got this one on audiobook and loved it. The book has the added bonus of historical photos of this amazing fair. Great characters, sweet family, happy times. You'll especially like the granfather who turns out to be a crony of Buffalo Bill, a surprise to his family. Rich details of what the fair offered and lots of suprising plot turns. Real characters from Lilian Russell to Chicago high society.  Hardbound with glossy pictorial cover. Ex-library.

   "On that day, Rosie Beckett's family receives a letter - possibly the first letter they've ever received from their aunt Euterpe in distant Chicago. It is 1893, the year  of the World's Columbian Exposition - the 'wonder of the age'. Tucked inside the pages of the letter are train tickets. Aunt Euterpe is inviting Rosie's family to the fair! But is she ready for the tumult of her country relatives? Well, ready or not, they soon arrive; 13 yr old Rosie and her lovelorn older sister, Lottie, feeling a bit stiff in their new skirts' 7 yr old Buster, whose pockets always conceal some jumping creature or other' and an unlikely chaperone who'll be the first of many breathtaking surprises for everybody. As for Rosie, she will forever recall the marvels of that summer, and how she sound her future at the fair. In this dazzling tour de force, Richard Peck combines the fictional Beckett family with some of the era's most fascinating real people - including Buffalo Bill himself - for a whirl wind of humor, misadventure, and charms beyond measure."

        Selling duplicates of books we have & enjoy.   Media $2.50  and I am always happy to combine shipping.

    I have opened an ebay store. See it as I load the "shelves". I will be able to keep a group of science, history, fiction, children's, geography and Texana books available to you as well as my usual teacher / homeschool materials and AV machines. I have rooms full of these duplicates to sell. All has been either read or previewed for content. The store should be a time-saver for me and a convenience for you. You'll find bargains, not mark-ups. Nearly all will have BIN the same as opening bid for the auction format & no waiting or danger of being outbid!Let me know if you like it!

    NOTE! I sell nearly all school surplus items. My only bad comments have come from book "collectors". I guess I am a book user! Expect to see library marks. I clean a lot of them off, but my interest is in the content , basic neatness, sturdiness. As a good ebayer, always read descriptions thoroughly and ask questions rather than assume, then blame the poor seller. Ebay should be fun!!
