With the oil running out this book has an apocalyptic tone, but it's the most charming apocalyptic book I've ever read. Bad things happen and everyone is pushed to their limits, but the kids are able to rise above it and focus on the good things that are happening. There are other nice themes woven into the plot such as the family growing some of their own food, biking, and recycling junk into art.
