Every Sunday Aunt Essy, Aunt Chanah, and Uncle Sam drive up in the old Lincoln for the afteron. They plop themselves down in the living room, and matter what anyone says their response is always the same Oy, Feh, So? One afteron the three children try to provoke a different reaction. They fake a robbery, produce a terrifying child-eating dragon, and pretend to be kidnapped by space invaders, but their aunts and uncle remain unimpressed. In exasperation the children take to mocking them, and soon they are all laughing so hard they re practically crying. Cary Fagan s characteristically dry humor and Gary Clement s witty illustrations perfectly depict a family with loveable quirks in this story that is sure to become a favorite.
