Nancy, Abe's mother, had warned them about the creek and there it was churning and splashing around the rocks. Abe was pointing toward the other side, while Austin crooked his finger and pensively held it up to his face. "I don't know, Abe. The water's darn high . . . and we can't swim." A little dare from Abe and off they went. Those mudcaked toes made their way across a log, first Austin and then Abe . . . no, it didn't go like that. They crawled across. Austin carefully pulled and pushed himself across the log until he made it to the other side. "YEE-HAW! WHOOOP! He made it. It was Abe's turn and all of a sudden he was "head over heel, and then . . . " What happened to Abe? Was he going to drown in the churning waters of Knob Creek?"
This was an unusual take on a story, a story that changes in the middle of the stream. The author and illustrator are telling their tall tale when all of a sudden they start over and change it a couple of times. "WHOA . . . hold on a minute." Then with the stroke of a pen and brush the story is changed.Read more ›
