Hilarious! Meet Mr. and Mrs. Pepin, their children Petunia and Irving, their dog Roy, their cat Miranda, their cow Nelly and their "very fine neighbor" Mr. Bradshaw, an inventive snack-food maker who helps solve their various problems, like how to get down off the roof or what to do with the dapper man who arrives unannounced on their doorstep. The author claims to have psychic antennae with which she can receive the thoughts of her readers who send out suggestions for solving the various problems. ("A reader from Grow, Texas, thinks the Pepins should build an identical house...") Knock-out twists of phrases and the author's chatty repartee with her readers make for a funny read that works for kids and adults.

ugh truly bad...I couldn't get past chapter two. Just nonsense and not in the good way that I tend to like nonsense. I finally closed the book and declared the characters little idiots...too painful to read further. ( )

This book is about a family (the Pepins) who get lots of problems everyday that have to be solved. This isn't any odarnary family either because they have a cow that makes lemonade and a talking dog & cat( that traveled around the world in a little airplane).I like this book because it's a funny and interesting book to read. The family has to come up with ideas together so they can solve the problem. There problems do actually gat solved. Thank's to the Pepins! ( )

This book is about this family always having problems. Like when the family has a problem and they can't solve, the author stops writing and says, "what should they do for there problem?" Then he says all these kids write him about what they should do. Also in the book their fine neightbor falls in love with a pole, but he doesn't know it intill the Pepins tell him, because he was blind thats why he didn't know it so he has to get glasses. But the neighbor falls in love with a real person as soon as he gets his glasses to see. Also they had a fine neighbor contest to see which neighbor was better because there neighbor was fighting with the Pepins other neighbor because the other one is mean. There is many stories in this book. But those were the best out of all of them.
