9780688155957: McBroom's Wonderful One-Acre Farm: Three Tall Tales

When Josh McBroom learns that the eighty acres of Iowa farmland he's purchased are all stacked up on top of each other at the bottom of a muddy little pond, he thinks he's been bamboozled. But McBroom knows he's got the better of the bargain when the pond dries up to reveal an acre of soil so rich that seeds spring up into full-grown plants in no time and even nickels grow into quarters.

About the Author:

Sid Fleischman wrote more than sixty books for children, adults, and magicians. Among his many awards was the Newbery Medal for his novel The Whipping Boy. The author described his wasted youth as a magician and newspaperman in his autobiography The Abracadabra Kid. His other titles include The Entertainer and the Dybbuk, a novel, and three biographies, Sir Charlie: Chaplin, The Funniest Man in the World; The Trouble Begins at 8: A Life of Mark Twain in the Wild, Wild West; and Escape! The Story of The Great Houdini.



Quentin Blake is one of the most iconic illustrators of our time. He has also written the words for many of his own books and, this time, for another artist. Quentin taught for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art. You can visit him online at www.quentinblake.com.



Marylin Hafner illustrated many beloved books for children, including the seasonal favorites It's Christmas and It's Halloween, both by Jack Prelutsky, and A Carnival of Animals, by Sid Fleischman.
