'We sure had a time in all that sand and all those thistles, didn't we?' Join author Jack D. Wilkinson as he travels to Midlove, Kansas, In the 1930s. In this small town, ten-year-old Johnny and his best buddies-Tommy, Tubby, and Rabbit-find joy in simple pleasures. Like many boys their age, they love to play pranks, and their many mischievous antics keep them on the run from Old Man Kretz and Elec Roffman, who are always out to get them. But times are tough, and Johnny's father is forced to sell his business and prepare to move the family to Arkansas. With just a short time left, Johnny must learn to treasure each moment and discover the meaning of true friendship. Along the journey, he'll find some unexpected friends and new challenges before heading out on a new adventure. Join Johnny and his friends as they spend one glorious year among the Sand and Thistles.
