Nothing ever happens on my block is one long complaint by a boy who thinks he lives on the most boring block in his city. But while a bored Chester Filbert goes on lamenting that he can’t find anything interesting in his surroundings (sounds familiar?), behind him a dozen different scenes unfold in bright splashes of color: a fire rages, a landscaper digs up some buried treasure, a postman is dowsed in water, a parachute lands, an ambulance is called, different scenes unfold offering a pictorial counterpoint that will offer hours of diversion to readers who will find themselves picking out first the obvious then the many details.
