America's best-selling outdoor humorist for adults has a secret following: middle-grade and young-adult readers.
Never Cry "Arp!" is a lively collection of twelve stories about young Pat's misadventures in the Great American Wilderness.
All the McManus regulars are here: Crazy Eddie Muldoon, the best friend everybody wishes they had (and everybody's mother wishes they didn't); Rancid Crabtree, the good-hearted, if gamey, woodsman; Pat's skunk dog, Strange, who lives up to his name; and Pat's pal, Retch Sweeney, who does, too.
This is a book for kids who love to start fishing at 4am (at least they say they do) or for those who prefer to experience the mighty outdoors in the safety of their homes.
"Everybody should read Patrick McManus," said the New York Times. Now, everybody can.
