The latest tale from Deckawoo Drive is a balm for young worrywarts facing the unknown. Welcome back to Deckawoo Drive for a sixth endearing installment in the companion series to Kate DiCamillo’s New York Times bestselling Mercy Watson books. Frank Endicott is a worrier. He worries about lions, submarines, black holes, leprosy, and armadillos. He lists his worries alphabetically in a notebook and suffers vivid nightmares that even a certain neighborhood pig can’t dispatch. When he accompanies Eugenia Lincoln on an errand to duplicate a key at her favorite dark and dusty thrift shop, Frank earns fresh cause for alarm. Odd Buddy Lamp, the shop’s proprietor, has sent them home with the original key and its copy. Can Frank come to terms with the mystery without buckling under his mounting dread? With a little help from friends (old and new), hot cocoa, and some classic short stories read aloud, the prognosis is good.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The tale is as uplifting as it is literary, and…may inspire readers to be like Franklin, a child open to receiving his very own mysterious, ­life-changing key…A glorious love letter to childhood uncertainty and the powerful and transformative world of reading.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Opening music places listeners in the idyllic setting of Deckawoo Drive. Harper aptly voices the unique personalities of a variety of characters…His narrative style is both unhurried and expressive, making for an easy listen, especially as a read-along for younger listeners who have the printed book.” AudioFile
