Quick Overview

Each summer throughout the nine years of the Great Depression, Joey and his sister Mary Alice from Chicago visit their grandmother's sleepy Illinois town. Each summer they discover a visit to Grandma Dowdel's is far from typical.


Each summer Joey and his sister, Mary Alice—two city slickers from Chicago—visit Grandma Dowdel's seemingly sleepy Illinois town. Soon enough, they find that it's far from sleepy...and Grandma is far from your typical grandmother. From seeing their first corpse (and he isn't resting easy) to helping Grandma trespass, catch the sheriff in his underwear, and feed the hungry—all in one day—Joey and Mary Alice have nine summers they'll never forget! Size 0.5" H x 7.74" L x 5.06" W, 148 pages
