Grandfather Tales

by cyn.m.e. (WorldCat user published 2013-09-26) Very Good Permalink

I read this book to my children when they were very young...they always begged for more.

One of my favorites was "Where's my chunk o' meat". They would always jump at the very end and we would roll around laughing.
