The Animal, The Vegetable, and John D. Jones

Book Review
The Animal, The Vegetable, and John D. Jones
Betsy Byars

“Adults throw perfectly strange kids together and expect them to become instant friends!” Deanie and Clara Malcolm are sure their holidays are going to be perfect. That is, until they find out about Delores Jones and her insufferable son, John D.

John D. Jones Jr. has always been what he considered a perfect child, so why would his mother want to go spend her holiday with some man and his two girls?

With Deanie and Clara arguing and John D. ignoring everyone, the holiday is sure to be horrible.
But then something happens that brings them all together.
An enjoyable, witty, well-written book of family relationships. This humorous story is suggested for readers aged 10-14.

I like the story you and Anna wrote. And I'm not that grumpy. Just once in a lifetime. :D
