Read an Excerpt
When Bootie was a little girl she would visit her Grandma Lillie and Grandpa Ray. They lived in a very small town, in a very little tiny small house.
Grandma Lillie's little tiny small house was sooooo small. Her house had only four little tiny small rooms. There was a living room, kitchen and two bedrooms. There was no plumbing in the little tiny small house, so there was no indoor bathroom. The only heat came from a pot-belly stove in the middle of the living room.
Grandpa Ray lovingly called the pot-belly stove, Old Hot George.
On cold frosty mornings when Bootie would visit grandma and grandpa she could see her breath hanging as a mist in the air.
Bootie would jump out of bed as quickly as she could because it was sooooo cold. She would put on the clothes that she had decided to wear the night before. She would put them on very fast. Bootie was shivering as she could hear her teeth chatter.
