Jenny's ear is able to hear what people are thinking. When her brothers learn of this exciting new ability, they immediately look for ways to use it to make money, taking their sister to the local spelling bee, and later, to nationally televised quiz shows, where she can't be beat - at least, not until her unique ability begins to fade away.

Jenny doesn't get into half as much trouble as some of her adult counterparts, who using one device or another, managed to accumulate a fortune .

Jenny doesn't get into half as much trouble as some of her adult counterparts, who using one device or another, managed to accumulate a fortune on various quiz shows. But then Jenny is only six and her peculiar advantage is an ear, which shocked by her brothers' electric equipment, has become telepathic. It is no problem for Jenny to answer questions; she merely reads the answers in the mind of her interrogator. A funny and fantastic story by the author of The Enormous Egg, though perhaps not quite funny enough to muse those who had any intimate contact with the recent fiasco.

As touching and witty as when I was a kid.

This was my absolute favorite book when I was a kid. I am so happy to have a copy of my own!

One of my favorite books of all time (I read this at least a dozen times as a kid and then got it for my kids to read). Very hard to find but worth every penny. A delightful story. Great for kids ages 7-12. My highest recommendation.

My mother read this book when she was a child. Then she told me to check it out from the library when I decided I was old enough to read a book with chapters. I think I was about 8, and I loved this book. I read it over and over. Even though I am now 22, if this was still in print I would buy a hardcover copy and keep it on my bookshelf just in case I wanted to be a kid again for a couple hours...

Thank you-- This was a book I read in 4th grade, and my grand daughter is in 4th grade now. The author was also a professor at Hartford College for Women- my English professor--- how cool is that!
I read it in 3rd grade, and have always wanted to see it again: just as sweet as I remember.
