A Far-Fetched Story by Karin Cates
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What's a frugal, no-nonsense grandmother to do, with a harsh winter approaching and the woodpile stacked higher than the very windowsills? Send the family out for even more firewood, dearie, that's what. But when the boy, the girl, the parents, and even the baby come back from the forest empty-handed and full of excuses, Grandmother knows a tall tale when she hears five of them! Find out how a spool of far-fetched stories (plus, mysteriously, the remains of a dress, two shirts, a gown, and one baby-sized polka-dotted sash) lead to a homespun treasure that makes for the warmest -- and coziest -- of endings.
