Every summer, from the time he was nine, Joey and his sister Mary Alice took the train from Chicago to spend a week with their Grandma in small town Illinois. And when they got there they never knew what to expect, because, you see, Grandma Dowdel was the scandal of the town. As a matter of fact, each year the surprises grew more outrageous with their never predictable grandma. A funny, fast moving, and ultimately heartwarming story that will stay with listeners long after its telling has been completed.

An entertaining tale of life back in the Great Depression as a boy and his sister visit their grandmother's small town over the summer. Grandma is always out to win though she will act disinterested. With the audio version, you get to hear the tunes for some of the old-time songs crooned, not necessarily sung.

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.
