No More Cornflakes
When ten-year-old Hortense discovers her parents pretending to be rabbits, she knows something is up.
Then, all her mother seems interested in doing is taking naps and eating cornflakes. Hortense can see that her family must be going nuts—and she must do something about it, immediately!
“Fifth-grader Hortense, drifting away from her prim best friend, Doris, toward the livelier and more interesting Virginia, is also attempting to forge a friendship with caustic, worldly Aunt Kate. It is the author’s foot-off-the-brakes literary style that gives the novel its distinctive flair.” — Copyright © 1991 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
