About this title


A nostalgic view of the best town in the world, where dogs were smarter, chickens laid prettier brown eggs, wildflowers grew taller and thicker, and the people knew how to make the best chocolate cakes and toys in the world.

From Publishers Weekly:

An ode to a Southwestern town, where Baylor's father grew up, where the wildflowers were prettier than those found elsewhere and the chickens laid exceptional eggs. "Everything in that town was a marvel and so is this creation by two sensitive artists. Captivated by Himler's radiant watercolors and Baylor's singing text, anyone will agree that the town in this ballad earns its reputation," said PW.
