  1. Cheryl says:

    (Read at UPenn's online archive.) What a delight! I think one of the things that's so special is that it's for children younger than the usual Newbery audience. I believe that even 5 year olds would enjoy hearing this read to them.I loved the 'quaintness about it. It reads very old-fashioned, even for 1948, but still accessible. For example, one character gets a bit of advice that I wonder if Dickens' Scrooge couldn't have used: "[D]on't try to become generous overnight. You could get dizzy from [...]

  2. Shell says:

    The Quaint and Curious Quest of Johnny Longfoot won a Newbery Honour Award in 1948 so don't let my two star rating put you off. It is beautifully written and has some lovely qualities but I found it lacked depth and the characters were a bit bland.This tale about Johnny's quest is quite witty for a children's story. His adventures with his animal friends through the mountains and across the ocean to the coral island would probably be quite magical to a child and I wish that I could have read thi [...]

  3. Thomas Bell says:

    What a stupid book. Very tempting to give it 1 star, but then I look back at my 1 star books man they're bad.So anyway, the idea of this book is nice. A boy goes to visit his miserly uncle, they go on an adventure in search of treasure, and the uncle learns that miserliness never was happiness. IfHere's the problem. The cuteness and silliness is exaggerated into absurdity and stupidity.The best part about this book is that it is short and easy to be done with.

  4. Jennifer (JenIsNotaBookSnob) says:

    This is a strange book. I believe that the book is supposed to feel like an old book. Granted, this was written in the 1940's, but, the language is outdated for that time period as well. It is probably intended to be like any of a number of other whimsical children's stories starring talking animals. I still don't know if I liked this book. The part that bothered me is that whenever a problem shows up in the book, the solution is only a paragraph away. Some of the solutions are just too ridiculo [...]

  5. Ethan Hulbert says:

    One of my favorite books of all time. Johnny Longfoot is a treasure. This has inspired so much in my life, mostly my sense of perpetual wonderment and fantasy.

  6. Michael Fitzgerald says:

    This tale contains quite a bit of humor that is more suitable for adults than for children. In some ways, it is in the same league as The Land of Green Ginger. Other aspects are more juvenile, like My Father's Dragon.

  7. Roni says:

    It was a quick and easy reading. It was about the young boy named Johnny who was shoe apprentice well-taught by his father. His father was known as the Shoe-King. His father decided to send him to his uncle for vacation, however he warned him that his uncle was well-known for being thrifty. Johnny had a lifetime adventure by traveling with dancing bears, 3 dogs and several cats along with his uncle in tow. His uncle learned the motto at end of the story which was good ones.

  8. Heather says:

    This 1948 Newbery Honor book felt rather out-of-date. It is a cute story, but not in the same way that My Father's Dragon (a 1949 Newbery Honor by Ruth Gannett) is cute, plus it hasn't stood the test of time as well as Gannett's book, which is still in print and marketed to new readers.

  9. Mckinley says:

    A fairytale feel to this adventure story as a young boy sets out to gain his fortune complete with animal companions.
