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.
