Description-

  • After moving into their new home, a keeling-over farmhouse in the country, nine-year-old Cyrus and his brother, Rudy, have trouble adjusting to all the changes. The fresh-from-the-farm egg yolks are blindingly yellow. The eccentric girl next door has a very unusual sense of style. And Rumpley, a donkey they inherited with the farmhouse, doesn't even know how to bray. Nothing about the country feels warm or familiar. But when Cyrus is stranded one evening by the tide, he finds his lifeline in an unlikely companion.

    Blackberry Juice is the sequel to Not For Sale.

    July 1, 2016
    Newly relocated to a run-down seaside farm, brothers (and best friends) Cyrus and Rudy face big changes.Although Cyrus, 9, and Rudy, 8, have some serious reservations about leaving the city, the move they tried hard to prevent in Not for Sale (2015), there are ample new and interesting aspects of rural life to distract them. Most important of these are their colorful new neighbors, Rachel (who is clothed entirely in a different primary color each day) and her grandparents, and a depressed donkey, Rumpley, that unexpectedly came with the house. For Rudy, some of the fun comes in the form of an old thesaurus that gives him the opportunity to spout amusing synonyms. Cyrus takes the donkey on as his personal project. Rumpley hasn't enjoyed life since his old master died two years ago, but Cyrus is determined to make up for that. The donkey's loyal payback eventually plays a critical role in an exciting (if a bit improbable) climax when Cyrus accidentally gets stranded on a rock during a rising tide. Flook's cartoon illustrations enhance the simple, amusing text that is peopled with warm, engaging characters (all of them apparently white) and a gently nuanced animal relationship. Short chapters and a limited vocabulary make this a fine choice for emerging readers. A summertime visit to the countryside with people who are fun to share time with. What could be better? (Fiction. 6-10)

    Gr 2-4-When Cyrus and Rudy's mom move them to a run-down old house in the country, the two have a hard time adjusting. A donkey who came with the house, an absent dad, a constantly busy mom, and a bossy, eccentric neighbor girl only make it worse. In an attempt to get a handle on his life, Cyrus rescues a crab. Soon his mom tells him he has to put it back in the water. When Cyrus does so, however, he gets stranded out in the water with the tide quickly rising. Can Cyrus and Rudy adjust to their new home? Will someone be able to save Cyrus? Illustrations are detailed and help to draw readers into Cyrus and Rudy's world. This appealing title is humorous, short, and hard to put down. VERDICT Newly independent or reluctant readers looking for a good laugh or who are dealing with moving will appreciate this lighthearted, warm tale.-Kira Moody, Whitmore Public Library, Salt Lake City
