About the Book

Grab a chair and sit for a while.
Bring your laughter and your smile.

"Molly McDougal Montgomery McGrath"
Is guaranteed to make you laugh.

As will Aunt Bertha and bald Uncle Fred,
Or would you prefer an odd hat on your head?

In that case, the place is "Fedora Flats."
Where else may you wear a porcupine hat?

I hope that I don’t hear you complain
If zombies await you at Fourth and Main.

You will feel sad when you say goodbye
To "The Beast, The Frog, My Friend and I."

But take heart, dear reader: you’ll split your sides
Reading the stories you find inside.

You will chuckle, chortle, roll on the floor,
Fall down laughing and beg for more.

Hold on to your hat. Admire your pants.
Be grateful for visits from uncles and aunts.

Don’t turn up your nose at the presents they bring.
"Bermuda Shorts" may be just the right thing.

When you’ve read the stories, be happy, my friend.
You will soon take them out and read them again.
