A sticky situation

"One hot summer in Itching Down, 4 million wasps flew into town." And so starts an adventure filled with ingenuity, laughter, and LOTS of strawberry jam! The rhyming cadence of the story adds to the fun (and also makes it easier for the lines to stay in your head for long periods of time! I should know, it was my brother's favorite as a child and 30 years later I still have half the book memorized!).

Come laugh along with Mr. Lord's story & Ms. Burroway's rhyming verses and watch how the citizens of Itching Down turn a potential catastrophe into something unique!
