Read full description of the books McBroom the Rainmaker:Another book in the McBroom adventure series. I didn't like this one very much but is was still entertaining. The pieces of the story felt more disjointed.
The best part of this book for me was that no matter how desperate the drought became or how dire his neighbors predictions, McBroom stuck to his decision not to buy rusty old nails marketed as "rain magnets." Fear and peer pressure move people to act in ways they normally wouldn't. I'm grateful McBroom didn't give in.
Sure he travels with wagon loads of soil to chase a rain cloud with a rain bird in order to grow onions big enough to make humongous mosquitos cry, but he doesn't buy those silly nails. :)
Age recommendation: 5-10

Sid Fleischman wrote his books at a huge table cluttered with projects: story ideas, library books, research, letters, notes, pens, pencils, and a computer. He lived in an old-fashioned, two-story house full of creaks and character, and enjoys hearing the sound of the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Fleischman passed away after a battle with cancer on March 17, 2010, the day after his ninetieth birthday.
