- 1945 Caldecott Medal Honor Book
Ach!; Yonie scolded himself, "here I am, being a Wondernose, just like always.
Seven-year-old Yonie is a wondernose because he can't keep his nose out of anything. It seems that his nose is always getting him into trouble. When Yonie's 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.
