Abstract:

Clever Aunt Nancy manages to foil all those who try to get the better of her. Come on in and stay a spell! Aunt Nancy outwits four unwelcome guests in these trickster tales from a masterful storyteller. It would take a real pesky visitor to make himself unwelcome to Aunt Nancy. But just her luck -- not one but four bothersome folks come knocking at her door! From Cousin Lazybones to Old Man Trouble, from doleful Old Woeful to sly, slick Mister Death, Aunt Nancy's visitors nearly try her patience. But Aunt Nancy's head isn't there just to keep her ears from fighting, and see if she doesn't get the best of all her guests! Here in one volume are Phyllis Root's irresistible trickster tales, illustrated with David Parkins's droll silhouettes and full-color paintings.
