Funny, charming, exciting - but I just couldn't suspend enough disbelief to enjoy it as much as some other readers have done. Mostly quite light reading - the themes/ lessons aren't so subtle one has to do dig for them. There's a token bit of drama at the beginning, when an elderly neighbor dies, and another at the end, when a bystander family seems to get badly hurt, but it reminded me of nothing so much as earlier works by [a:Roald Dahl|4273|Roald Dahl|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1311554908p2/4273.jpg] or of [b:Chitty Chitty Bang Bang|576335|Chitty Chitty Bang Bang|Ian Fleming|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1175950916s/576335.jpg|2245507]. If you can get a copy easily, enjoy - but don't bother hunting it down as I did. ( )

This book is an awesomely amusing amazingly funny book that tells the adventures of Stella Street and the new neighbour of the Phonies. The new neighbours are annoying and full of complaints about the other people living in Stella Street. The other people are curious about the Phonies and how they earn so much money and their abnormal habits.

The main narrator is Henni, a 11 year old girl who is friends with some other children living in Stella Street. Some of Henni's friends are the electrical dude Zev and a young kiddy called Frank. Together, the group of immature children set out to solve the mysteries of the Phonies.

I of course read this when I was in about Grade 4 or 5; what I remember is a wonderful story that takes its time unfolding, portrays detailed characters, and has an unusually complex and mature plot at its core. ( )

When the Phonies move into Henni and her friends' street the children want them out. A humourous adventure story told from the point of view of Henni. 10+
