This is the sequel to A long way from Chicago, which first introduced Joey, Mary Alice and Grandma Dowdle. Once again, a charming story that takes place in the depression era. Grandma is such a character--I enjoyed every minute of these cd's. She's a feisty old lady who doesn't suffer fools lightly, speaks her mind and also has a heart of gold. Suitable for any age as its such a terrific story. Start with the first title "A long way from chicago" and you won't be able to wait to read/listen to this one too!
