From Library Staff

Each August, from 1929 to 1935, Joey and his sister travel by train from Chicago to spend a week with Grandma in her small Illinois town. In seven short stories that read like tall tales, Grandma lies, cheats, trespasses, and contrives to help the town underdogs outwit the establishment.

Lovely story of two children from depression era Chicago who spend a week each year visiting their Grandmother in small town America. Grandma loves to razz the other locals when they invade her privacy! This is a charming story that's not to be missed. The reader does a terrific job on this compact disc.
