Twelve-year-old Margie Carson loves hearing stories. And her daddy loves to tell them. One hot summer night Daddy, Margie, and her seven-year-old cousin Ethel troop over to the old one-room school for round of special storytelling. Daddy tells the girls about the time Aunt Daisy was chased by a scary, eight-foot-tall shadow one Sunday night in her backyard…about the flood that nearly washed away the whole town and left a catfish on a neighbor’s pillow…stories about rocks that bite and walnut wars…stories about Mary McLeod Bethune and the time Eleanor Roosevelt came to town…ten wonderful stories in all.
