About this Item

Trade paperback, 6.75x8.25in. 16 p. Stapled binding. Color drawings. Audience: Children/juvenile. RARE Illustrated folk tale from days of old among rural small farmers and thatched cottages. Tom headed out with his sack as he and his mother needed food. He first finds honey bees and they go into his sack. Then, he stops to help a woman with her chickens; he cautions her, "This sack belongs to me, and it would be a mistake to open it." She does. The bees buzz off, and she gives him a chicken, much embarrassed. So it goes, he visits along the road with a few more, each time, helping with chores, finding his sack contents lost, and coming away with something even better. Lessons in neighborliness, bartering, food gathering, and human impulse. Fine. No dust jacket as issued. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.E0050003632

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
