Things Will Never Be the Same: A 26 Fairmount Avenue Book
Tomie dePaola. Putnam Publishing Group, $13.99 (96pp) ISBN 978-0-399-23982-3
In a starred review of the series launch, PW wrote, ""26 Fairmount Avenue is an address readers will eagerly revisit in the series' subsequent tales,"" and Things Will Never Be the Same by Tomie dePaola lives up to its predecessors. In this fifth installment, young Tomie gets his first diary, in which he records the year's events, including Miss Leah's Dance Recital, the start of second grade and the opening battles of WWII-the event that inspires the titular phrase.
