I have been racking my brain with trying to put a finger on how I would describe this series and why I enjoyed reviewing it. I have decided this series reminds me of the television show "Seinfeld".

This is a fun sequel to Letters to Wishing Rock. I listened to it 2 years ago and was thrilled to see Stucky wrote more about the quirky people of Wishing Rock. This book is a compilation of e-mails.
