A beautiful and rich story about imagination and family from the author/illustrator of The Lion and the Unicorn, which School Library Journal called "remarkable...a moving story." When Abel Grable returns home from his travels, he tells his family all about his adventures. One day he decides to write his stories down. He takes his table into the quiet garden and writes until dark -- and there the table stays, even after Abel goes looking for work again. His sons use the table to create their own imaginary adventures. And when Abel returns with more real-life stories, the children have their own fantastic tales to tell him, too.
