Tomie dePaola's Front Porch Tales and North Country Whoppers

By Tomie dePaola
Narrated by Tomie dePaola / 38 minutes

These laugh-out-loud stories from New Hampshire and Vermont are set during the four seasons of the year. The storyteller in his appealing dialect tells little-known tales, among them "Mothah Skunk" and the night she had to move out with her kits because Sherman Curtis smelled so bad; the escapades of Big Gertie Benson, the lumberjacks' cook and a cousin of the Bunyans in the Midwest; and George Petty, who delivered the mail even during mud season by standing on the back of his horse with only his head sticking out. Interspersed throughout are comic style episodes as an unsuspecting tourist tries to get information from the locals.

A delightful preface about living in New Hampshire for the past thirty-five years and visiting the North Country since he was a boy explains why Tomie dePaola has perfect pitch for the dialect and a genuine appreciation for these unforgettable characters and their understated humor. Perfect for listening to with the family or in the classroom, these tales are sure to be a hit with Tomie's fans, young and old.
