I loved this book. It was funny, poignant and inspirational. I have also read it to my kids who actually listened!. There are many references to growing up in the country, brief history of Loblolly Pine Trees, fire poppers and turkey buzzards. it was hysterical in unexpected places, well written and intriguing. I hope this is the first of many stories to come from this author.
One of my favorites is "MY Grandfather's Secret Room." I wasn't expecting it to end the way it did. How we forget the magnitude of influence our grandparents had over us when we were kids. It reminded me of "the good old days" when times were simpler and uncluttered and stories around the coffee pot at the corner store was considered entertainment.
I also enjoyed reading about the Mississippi country side. It sounds so beautiful and peaceful. With colorful characters and crazy circumstances plus a little mischief tossed in, it's a great read.
