A great story.
This continues Mrs. Dowdel's story perfectly.
Bob Barnhart and his family have just moved to town and he feels very out of his element. He is a PK- preacher's kid- which means that everyone is watching everything that he and his sisters do. They live in an old house on the edge of town. Their closest neighbor, Mrs. Dowdel, is as old as the hills and very unsociable. At least that's what Bob thinks at first, until he has a run-in with the town bullies and Mrs. Dowdel rescues him from a very compromising position. Then his younger sister befriends her and the whole Barnhart family find out that gifts come in many different shapes and packages.
