Hippomobile! We rated this book: $ Twins Jimmy and Stella live in a town called Wymore, where nothing exciting ever really happens. Usually the book is written from the perspective of the omniscient "we". Now overall, I do think that the author is a pretty good tall tale style storyteller. The entire book is written in a country slang, which may be difficult for reluctant readers to absorb quickly. That part did make the "read aloud" easier, I natcherly fell inta muh Texsus /5. Jeff Tapia grew up near St. Louis and studied German at Brown University. As a writer interested in many genres, Jeff has published plays and stories in German, a collection of short stories entitled Deep Tissue (Livingston Press, ), and the warmly received middle grade novel Hippomobile!/5(15).
