The story of how Austin, who wants more than anything else to get two stories at bedtime instead of one, finally gets his wish.

Dad plays the fiddle, Mom sings country-western, and Austin bangs the tambourine. They call themselves The Swamp Snakes. Every day they perform for a different audience. Every week they travel to a different town. But every night in their trailer, it's exactly the same: Austin gets one bedtime story, only one, even though he always begs his father for another. How Austin finally gets his second story--and then many, many more--makes for a crowd-pleasing picture book, with illustrations that kick up their own special cheer.
