Description
Our Ol' Man was a traveling salesman. A flimflam man, a dream saver, a wish keeper. Every afternoon when Da comes home in his old cruiser, a 1949 Buick, he bringsPatricia and Richard tales from the road. Like the one about Eldie Dunkle and the traintracks, or the one about the Bender sisters and their chewing tobacco. But the best one is theone about the rock, an old rock with deep, mysterious lines. Da and the children are surethat there is magic in it! They just don't know how, or what kind. Then one day, Da loses his job. Money is tight, and he might have to sell the oldcruiser. But he never gives up on that old rock, and sure enough, just as things are lookingbleak, the rock brings them just the magic they are looking for. Patricia Polacco once again reaches into her rich family background to spin a delightfultale of a very special father, and of the importance of magic, hope, and dreams.
