About the book
This novel starts at the very beginning in New York City when the Nilsson family moves all of their possessions to a brand new housing development on Long Island. Then, the novel shifts a few years ahead to our hero's first experiences in kindergarten in a rented room of an old Protestant Church. As the novel moves on, our hero continues his grade school education through sixth grade in a formal building where Lester is constantly confronted with other children his age; some become close friends, some are bullies, and others mold his life as our hero interacts with him. Not all the scenes in the story are school related. Many deal in other areas where a child's imagination and a parent's involvement can turn a simple act like losing a rubber boot down a street drain into an interesting dilemma. Often these situations involve people from other walks of life: policeman, construction people, strangers. 'Levittown' was written to entertain the reader, and I have purposely kept the pace of the plot moving so the reader will not dwell on one thing for too long. However, I hope that the reader will agree with me and our hero that Levittown was and I hope, is still a child's paradise.read more
