The jeep Mass Market Paperback. I think I was about 10 the first time I read this book. However, the story and Cloud's love of Jeeps stuck with me over the years and subconsciously played a significant role in my purchase of an old beat up CJ-7 about 20 years later. I rebuilt that Jeep from the wheels up and my (very young at the time) son and I spent many years riding around in it with the top down. That same son is 19 years old now and just purchased a Jeep of his own. He also asked if he could have my copy of this book to read. So I feel like things have come full circle.

Impressions after re-reading this book 38 years later! Published by Thriftbooks. It was probably a decade ago that my dad handed me his battered copy of The Jeep (which was the title of the 1970s reissue), telling me it was the only "real" book he'd ever read. In the fall of 4th, 5th & 6th grade, 1969-1971, I read the book, loving every page. It's been sitting on the bookshelf since then. Last week, in a bit of free time, I picked it up.

Robertson's book about a teenaged dreamer, Cloud, who desperately wants a Jeep of his own is okay, if a bit dated

Robertson's book about a teenaged dreamer, Cloud, who desperately wants a Jeep of his own is okay, if a bit dated. The plot and events are a bit on the unrealistically wholesome side, but that's to be expected of kid's books of the time

Well, Moik, someone did read your review! I was contemplating the purchase, but after the 3rd paragraph of your review I was spending the money.

In the fall of 4th, 5th & 6th grade, 1969-1971, I read the book, loving every page. For years, I've shared with others that it was my favorite book as a child. I've often wondered what it would be like to read it again. When it arrived, I was astonished to find that I had purchased a school book, complete with the little check-out card in the holder inside the back cover. The lines were empty - no one had checked out the book! I felt like I should sign and date it! I polished off the 1st two chapters and smiled. Yep! As good as I remembered.

It's a very easy read, made for an Elementary or Jr. High student. Pages seem to fly by. I'm glad I bought the book. I just may read it next year again!

Since no one else describes the plot... The hero is a teenage boy crazy about cars, especially old jeeps - back in the days when you could repair cars. He's asked to escort around a new kid, a Chinese-American who loves to pull the old "Charlie Chan" routine on unsuspecting people. Anyway, exploring, they find an abandoned farm and in the barn, an old jeep! The hero works at getting it running, which takes some cash, so he and his friend take odd jobs that sometimes work and sometimes fizzle. Like, not a good idea to bring all the bats you captured in an attic to a downtown lecture. They have friends in the neighborhood, all busy, and get some helpful advice from adults. He finally gets the jeep running, but then learns the farm and its contents(!) are to be auctioned off. After more misadventures and the intercession of his friends, and even some adults, all ends well. So mostly it's a book about making and being a friend, bumbling through life and learning on the fly, and how wonderful it was to spend lazy summers just clunking around. For ages 8 to 80.

I think I was about 10 the first time I read this book. However, the story and Cloud's love of Jeeps stuck with me over the years and subconsciously played a significant role in my purchase of an old beat up CJ-7 about 20 years later. I rebuilt that Jeep from the wheels up and my (very young at the time) son and I spent many years riding around in it with the top down. That same son is 19 years old now and just purchased a Jeep of his own. He also asked if he could have my copy of this book to read. So I feel like things have come full circle.

I honestly don't know if I would have gravitated toward a Jeep had I not read this book - and I doubt that my son would have without my influence. So my sincere thanks to Keith Robertson for inspiring a second and third generation of Jeep lovers.

As for the book itself? It's okay. It's not exactly award winning youth literature but it's entertaining in its own right. What makes it great is that the subject matter simply speaks to some kids. I was one of them.

I enjoyed this book when it first came out, and bought it for my son to read. I think this is a great chapter book for a 10 year old boy to read. Great characters, interesting plot, and just enough suspense to make it very fun without being off-putting. The complexity of the adversity that needs to be overcome, and the story of a boy being treated as an adult for the first time, and given responsibility for his own actions, make this a great coming of age story that rings true. While it is set in a more rural setting of an America pre-Vietnam, the environment is not so foreign that it is unrecognizable.

Very, very cool reading the reviews of this book.

I came across this paperback for the first time as a grade-schooler in the late '70s at a school library book sale and was immediately hooked on it. I read and re-read it countless times and later, as an adult, checked-out an old hardback copy from the local library at least twice.

Methinks it's time to grab another copy of my own!
