John Price appears to have thrown in the towel. He has spent the last year struggling to support his family, neglecting to spend time with his wife and children, and becoming increasingly cynical about the degraded state of the natural world around him. After a heart-attack scare, however, his wife demands that he start appreciating all the "good things" in his life: their mouse-infested old house, their hopelessly overgrown yard, and most of all, the joys and humiliations of parenthood. In his quest to become a better father, Price faces many unexpected challenges—like understanding his grandmother’s decision to die, and supporting his nature-loving sons’ decision to make their home a "no-kill zone" for all living creatures. Still he finds the second chance he was looking for—to save himself and, perhaps, his small corner of an imperfect yet still beautiful world.

Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in French, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.

Daddy Longlegs will have kids singing along with his bluesy song as they read this hip picture book! He's one cool cat who scats, an eight-legged drummer keeping the beat. He moves and grooves and gets funky across the floor. One thing's for sure: no one's better at getting mellow on a saxophone and bringing rhythm and soul into every child's home. Mike Ornstein's catchy rhyming text is irresistibly musical and Lisa Kopelke's witty art features plenty of fun details and an urban, bohemian flair. A glossary of blues terms, a list of instruments played by the characters and a page of facts about daddy longlegs and blues music provides extra entertaining information.
