Overview
Jerry Shore is ten. He lost his dad five years ago in the Big War, and broke a finger putting his fist through a wall. He s the man of the house and makes good money now, selling and renting magical objects he gets from the Wonderworker by the dump. And he s learning The Look, which puts people under his power. When some objects don t work, burly Cromer Borkin and sneaky Willie Fielder lead the kids at school to demand their money back. He s already spent it and would be in big trouble if not for The Doubler, which doubles money left in it overnight. Only pretty Suzie Steele still believes in him . . . and the Wonderworker, who cautions him not to misuse The Doubler and helps him discover his higher self.

Rowe, a former college professor and author of literary criticism, turns his hand to a fiction series for middle-grade readers with the story of Jerry Shore. The novel is set in the U.S. just after WWII, and Jerry and his mother are mourning his father’s death in the war. When Jerry’s mother tells him that he is now responsible for their well-being, he determines to make as much money as possible. Not all of his moneymaking schemes work out, and not all of them are honest, but along the way Jerry foils a bank robbery and meets the Wonderworker, a man who puts Jerry in touch with his own highest nature. Jerry’s life and the lives of his friends and family are changed in unexpected and wonderful ways as a result of the knowledge the Wonderworker imparts. Readers will find much to enjoy in Jerry’s humor, his resiliency, and in the way he meets challenges head on. Ages 8–12. (Sept.)
