Every Sunday, and especially on holidays, the Normale family gathers to eat dinner. They are a large Italian family. Yet Young Joe Normale feels ordinary among them and it’s no wonder: each member of his large family is named Joe in some form! With a new addition on the way “How many more Joes can there be?” Young Joe wonders. Even the coffee is called Joe! A one-day sale of irregular items helps to put his feelings in perspective.

"Pass the macaroni!" someone yelled across the dining room table.
"Can I have the grated cheese?" called out cousin Joely.
"Where're the meatballs?" shouted Young Joseph.
Every Sunday, and especially on holidays, the Normale¢ family gathered at Grandma and Grandpa’s house to eat dinner together. They would laugh and talk above their silverware clanking against their dishes. They were a large family.
Yet Young Joe Normali felt ordinary among them.
Every family member was named Joe in some form. His Grandpa was named Joe, his twin cousin's names were Joseph and Joey, the dog was named JoJo and the cat was called Johanna, and his Grandma's real name was Josephina. Additionally, all of the girls had "Jo" in their names too. His cousins were Joely, Joanne, Jodi and his sister was Josie. Uncle Joe had married a woman named Joan.

Professional Reviews

Fun Clever and Educational
I just read this book and felt compelled to leave a review. As an educator for young children I think Irregular Joe is a clever way to show how fun homonyms can be. The author finds a clever way to show kids and some adults a fun way to differentiate how the same words can have different meanings. I loved it! I highly recommend Irregular Joe.

Great Story
Nancy Mure did a good writing job of Irregular Joe, as she has done with her other children's books. I suggest people who think they are ordinary, read this one.

Great Illustrations!
Kate Keene has been an illustrator and fabulous artist virtually all of her life. She is my MOST favorite Illustrator!!!!! And, the book is GREAT too.
