About this title
In this lyrical rhymed story for children AND adults, old things in a junk store come magically to life and reminisce about the lives of the people to whom they once belonged. Illustrated with beautiful full-color collage artwork (by Parker as well), this charming book features secondhand items as its main "characters"--including a teddy bear, a bike, a golf club, an Easter basket, a watering can, a gumball machine, a tiara, a baseball, a carousel horse, a hymnbook, and a fishing pole. Each item shares happy memories and reflects on the sweet way of life enjoyed by its former owners. This curious, late-night conversation culminates with the ultimate tale--a touching tale with an important message for us all told by a very special object--an American flag. Tales of the Good Life is a fun peek into a junk store, a nostalgic look back, and most of all, a poignant reminder of how precious our way of life really is.About the Author:
