Newbery Honor Book Turtle in Paradise is beloved by readers, and now they can return to this wonderful world through the eyes of Turtle's cousin Beans. Grown-ups lie. That's one truth Beans knows for sure. He and his gang know how to spot a whopper a mile away, because they are the savviest bunch of barefoot conchs (that means "locals") in all of Key West. Not that Beans really minds; it's 1934, the middle of the Great Depression. With no jobs on the island, and no money anywhere, who can really blame the grown-ups for telling a few tales? Besides, Beans isn't anyone's fool. In fact, he has plans. Big plans. And the consequences might surprise even Beans himself.Praise: "As a storyteller, Holm is superb."--School Library Journal "Holm impressively wraps pathos with comedy."--Booklist "Anyone interested in learning to write crowd-pleasing historical fiction for elementary school readers would be wise to study Holm's work."--Publishers Weekly, starred review "Sweet, funny and superb."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review.
