That Sam! He's
got one heck of a puzzler. Folks are talking about what a scatterbrain
he is what with his keeping the cow on the roof, sleeping in his
Sunday britches, and eating his soup with a pitchfork. How's he
going to get his brains all gathered together?
He seeks the
help of the widder woman to see if she ain't got a potion that can
whip his brains into shape. Turns out she's brewing a batch of glue
stew right then, but Sam's got to help. In lieu of adding his beloved
pets to the ingredients, Sam must solve a few riddles. But his brains
are so scattered, it takes an Amazin' Maizie Mae to help him out
- and she's more than happy to lend Sam her brains.
illustrations create an unforgettable setting for this rollicking
folktale adaptation that teaches that a heart of gold is worth more
than a clever brain.
