Read full description of the books:
The soil on Josh McBroom's farm is amazingly rich.
Anything would grow in it - quick. Seeds would burst in the ground and crops would shoot right up before your eyes. Why, just yesterday our oldest boy dropped a five-cent piece and before he could find it that nickel had grown to a quarter.
Yep, this is a farm where the tales grow as tall as the corn.
Why, to hear McBroom tell it, EVERYTHING is bigger, better and even HOTTER than anywhere else.
The sun-ball began to outdo itself. Hot? Why the next morning it was so infernal hot that a block of ice felt warm to the touch. Mama had to boil water to cool it off. Sunflowers along the road picked up their roots and hurried under the trees for shade.
Join the silliness as McBroom and his eleven children do battle with a plague of grasshoppers and attempt to grow some prize-winning veggies for the County Fair.
Bushels of fun for everyone (sorry!) and another terrific (tall) tale by a wonderful storyteller.
