Item description for Things Will Never Be The Same: A 26 Fairmount Avenue book by Tomie dePaola...
Young Tomie receives a diary for Christmas and records all his adventures over the next year: sledding on his Junior Flexible Flyer, the big dance recital, a summer visit to an amusement park, the start of second grade, and real art lessons. But one Sunday in December, the dePaolas turn on the radio to learn that Pearl Harbor has been attacked. Truly, things will never be the same.
With the charming new feature of handwritten diary entries, the fifth book set at the Newbery Honor winning address of 26 Fairmount Avenue warmly captures both the fun and serious aspects of Tomie's childhood with a touching, timely relevance.
