The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread

(1965)
(The first book in the Morris Bird III series)
A novel by

 
 
On a quiet autumn afternoon in 1944, nine-year-old Morris Bird III decides to visit a friend who lives on the other side of town. So he grabs the handle of his red wagon and, with his little sister in tow, begins an incredible pilgrimage across Cleveland . . . and out of childhood forever.

Set against the backdrop of one of the worst industrial disasters in American history, Don Robertson's enduring, beloved masterwork is a remarkable story of destiny, bravery, and responsibility, as fresh and relevant as when it first appeared in print.

    

Praise for this book

"The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread is a brillant piece of writting- a book to put on the same shelf as The Catcher in the Rye and The Outsider. What waas it like to be at mid-century in the Midwest? Read this book and see." - Stephen King
