The One-Room Schoolhouse: Stories About the Boys

Jim Heynen  (1993)

A collection of short stories–and I mean short, the average length is two pages–telling of the antics, explorations and observations of a nameless group of young boys growing up in rural America.  I heard the author read some of his stories on NPR and was hooked.  They are uniquely written, with a keen eye on the youngsters’ perspective.  Some, and I won’t describe them lest I should give away any surprises, are downright hilarious.
