This book is really fun to read with a hillbilly accent. It's fun and cute, and the main message is that you can mess things up royally and your family will still love you. I only rated it 4 instead of 5 because we didn't read it enough times for me to be sure if it was Eleanor's favorite as much as mine.

This is a fun read-aloud book that teaches you're loved no matter how many mistakes you make. I loved the names of the characters and how the story starts with just one simple mistake and then rolls into a whole mountain of trouble. Highly recommended.
Mommy says: Yee-hah! Black clouds fly my troubles in the sky! This kid has more bad luck (despite his good intentions) than a fly in in a black bear's molasses. Mighty fun to read with a good hillbilly accent.

Have to read to see how much trouble Ima Bean gets into by messing with her Grandpaws fishing pole. FYI all the family members have some type of bean name in their name, very funny.

I absoluetly love this book. It's one that even my 24 year old daughter recently requested I read. I love to voice in this story and the tender family love shown to the little girl!

The Story of a boy who seems to have everything go wrong so he decides to run away. In the end he realizes that his family will still love him even if he messed everything up.
This would be a fun and exciting book to read to children. It shows children that everyone makes mistakes and it's ok

Must be read aloud with a thick ol' accent!! This was a favorite of my kids when I was teaching.

I grew up in North Carolina and Kentucky, an ardent fan of anything that smacked of sports, crawdads, mud balls, forts built in the woods, secret codes, bicycles without fenders, butter pecan ice cream, and snow. I was, however, decidedly uninterested in writing-or any academic aspect of school, for that matter-never imagining that at the age of thirty-five I would become a published author. And y ...more
