About the Book

Seven-year-old Yonie is a wondernose because he can’t keep his nose out of anything and is always getting into trouble.

When his parents go away overnight, he’s left as the man of the house and promised a special reward if he can keep himself and the farm out of trouble.

But that night a bad storm brings trouble–the kind that not even a full-grown man could handle easily.

Yonie Wondernose captures the essence of an exuberant child who is trying to earn his father’s respect while overcoming childish impulses.

This book was a 1945 Caldecott Honor Book because of its wonderful storyline and excellent writing. The story captures the beauty of Amish life alongside the Pennsylvania Dutch language.
