Original green cloth with some foxing on blank leaves and water stains on back cover. This is a delightful book for children, especially for those who say they hate school. Homer Fink is one of those kids who appears never to be listening, but when one gets his attention he spouts facts and figures to the amazement of everyone, including the teacher. The author, Homer's fellow student, relates: "I don't suppose it ever occurred to Homer Fink that other kids weren't as concerned about learning as he was. To tell the truth, I'm not interested in half the things Homer knows about. But I listen because sometimes Homer gets hot on a subject like the Second World War. I remember one afternoon he charted the battles of Coral Sea and Midway for me. Homer really had me believing he was right there with Admiral William Halsey. When Homer described how the Lexington went down, I started treading water to save my life."- pp. 3-4. 18l funny pp. Let the kids read it, too!
