Read in April, 2012, read count: 1

"I hate Brooklyn! Why did we have to move here?"

With an opening like that and with almost the entire story taking place in Prospect Park, I thought this would be a sure winner for me, but meh. I enjoyed seeing the Park circa 1972, and loved the mother's nonchalant reaction when Jennifer comes home and announces that she met "a funny old man" who gave her a nut.

But the magical events and the secret of the funny old man seemed a little ho-hum and flat.

Bought at the Windsor Terrace used bookstore that smells like cat urine.
