More Huckleberry Hill adventure
I love all of the Huckleberry Hill books. Anna and Felty are precious. Keep them coming. Even tho knew the outcome would be what it was from the beginning, the storyline was both fun and thought provoking.

When Jethro finds Mary Anne, she is camping in his tent with his cot in their backyard. Jethro ...more
