Fun book to read aloud
This is the story that begins McBroom's saga of his one acre farm. Josh McBroom along with his wife Melissa and their eleven children leave their farm in Connecticut and head west when they get as far as Iowa. Then Melissa screamed out loud because she counted 12 little redheaded freckle faced children in the car instead of the eleven they were supposed to have. Turns out that Larry, one of the kids, had sneaked around and let himself be counted twice!

Here while they are stopped, comes up a tall skinny stranger who inquires if they are lost. When told what and where they are going, the stranger introduces himself to them and offers to sell them 80 acres without a rock or stump on it. McBroom explains that he has only ten dollars and the man shouts, SOLD. From here on the story gets hysterically funny. It turns out that Josh McBroom was flim flamed as his 80 acres and found out the 80 acres was 80 acres stacked one upon the other under the pond.

The antics that follow are priceless, the rich soil of the dried up pond is so rich that they can grow a seed in 30 minutes, making for many harvestings in just one day and lining the pockets of the McBrooms. The original owner wants desperately to get the land back and tries many shenanigans to accomplish this but to no avail.

If you have never read any of McBroom's stories to your child, then you're missing out on a fun read for both of you. It's exciting to see what outrageous thing will happen next, all the while with McBroom saying that he never lies. This is the part that reminds me of my husband's grandfather who could tell a tall yarn. After being fooled many a time, I finally figured him out. This story dates back to 1966 and has been a well read story since then. Try all of the McBroom books and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.
This is a delightful tale of Josh McBroom and his family as they move west (to Iowa to be exact) and take up the honest work of farming the land. Of course, they meet up with tricky Hector "Heck" Jones who attempts to cheat them. However, from that point on, McBroom and his loving family are overwhelmed with the great abundance that the land yields. Watch out for the watermelons and pumpkins! This is a great American tall tale that should keep both young and older readers smiling.
I have a large(11 children) family and this book leaves the whole room in giggles. Refreshing to see a book portraying a big family. My copy of this book is so well used it's falling apart. Best part is it's a hilarious read even for mummy!
Hardcover classic with all the illustrations. This is the one from my childhood. Great find.
I read this book repeatedly throughout my childhood (probably the first printing),and I think that the essence of the book is that you can make it through anything life throws at you if you have a positive attitude and the will to succeed. I recently repurchased this book to read to my nieces. A "10"
