CRAZY AS YOU LOOK!

A period piece of Kentucky small town life around 1915 is a chain of happenings in the life of Mary Lizbeth Morgan who lives with her grandmother and their Negro hired man Lyssus. It is Lyssus who means most to Mary Liz but through their escapades-going to a revival meeting, a minstrel show, visiting relatives, surviving a fire- the town and its people, as well as Mary Liz and Lys, spring to life. A sure narrative ability, established with books like The Boy Who Stole the Elephant and Harmony Ahead, plus Lee Ames' lit-up pictures, guarantee where this kind of story appeals.
