A "very vivid and entertaining tale of fair play and poetic justice,"* The Araboolies of Liberty Street by writer Sam Swope and illustrator Barry Root is the story of a family overcoming neighborhood prejudice.

The General and Mrs. Pinch have always prided themselves on the character of those living on Liberty Street. But when the Araboolies move in, the rigid conformity stifling the neighbors is shattered by the newcomers'' joyous and eccentric behavior.

Now, the General has called in the army to reestablish order-only to find resistance from the children of Liberty Street determined to ensure the freedom of their newfound friends, the Araboolies.

"Even on a street named for freedom itself, people conform and are terrified by bullies, by killjoys.Enter the Araboolies, an irrepressible extended family of multicolored vagabonds [with] rollicking, nonconformist behavior."-*The New York Times Book Review

"The crisp text and autumn-muted, full-color paintings are a triumph of energy, enthusiasm, and design."-Booklist (starred review)

Sam Swope lives in New York City and teaches creative writing in schools across the country and on the Internet. Barry Root is the illustrator of many books for children. He lives in Quarryville, Pennsylvania.
