This is a very good book. I like it a lot you have to read it.
It isn`t only one story it is 14 short stories. They are all good.
Here are there titles: Face Cream from Godey`s Lady`s Book, It Rhymes With Mop, High Society,The Dog Who Could Spell, The Wrinkled Stockings, Whenever I`m Afraid, Grampa Hobbs, The Spelling Bee, The Prettiest House In The County, My Own Boss, The Harvest Home Festival, The Surprise Birthday Present, The Perfect Party, and Windfalls.
They are all wonderful stories.
From the back cover: "Tell me a story, Grandma." Those magical words unlock marvelous tales of days gone by...days of horse-drawn buggies and fancy carriages,hoopskirts and high-buttoned shoes...days remembered only by Grandmother, that natural storyteller of loving families who knew a simplier, perhaps richer time more than 100 years ago. Come with us now into Grandma's attic, that storehouse of many forgotten treasures- each piece reminding Grandma of a story from her childhood... The day her brother's tadpoles mysteriously turned up on Pa's chair.. the surprise party to which she invited everyone but the guest of honor...and dear old Grandpa Hobbs, who often forgot what day it was... but could recite much of the Bible by heart.
