A summer trip abounding in tomatoes and mischief
Annabelle and her little brother, Willie, are spending the week at Granny's. Annabelle, who has promised to keep her brother out of trouble, can't decide which is worse: being responsible for Willie, or helping Granny prepare tomatoes -- which Annabelle hates -- for home canning. Willie escapes his sister's surveillance to lasso chickens and torment the goat. Annabelle, when not searching for her brother, must squish hot tomatoes for juice - and find ways to avoid tasting the finished product. But the offending fruit ends up being of unexpected benefit as Willie's devilishness reaches an all-time high.
Annabelle narrates this flavorful farm story, depicted with comic illustrations.
