I just discovered Tim Wynne-Jones in the Horn Book and I enjoyed this book so much. Zany, funny, serious, never a dull moment. Rex Norton-Norton, aka Rex Zero (a friend of his says "Norton minus Norton is zero", hence the nickname) has three older sisters and a toddler brother. His parents are British, but the family lives in Canada and they move a lot. Rex is constantly having to start over--new place, new friends, new school, new doubts and questions. He embarks on some pretty crazy adventures, while trying to make sense of life and his place in it. Breezy and a lot of fun, with serious undertones. Quality writing, and Rex is a terrific character.
