Elmer grew up in the big city of Memphis, Tennessee. But every summer, his life transformed from that of a big city kid to a sweet country boy. At his uncle’s farm his friends were the animals: Shane the pony, Deputy Dog (a bowlegged rooster who barked like a dog), Moe the cow, and of course, all the chickens.
Go on an adventure with Elmer into the mind of a child, as he humorously narrates his real-life adventures. From losing a fight because of a runny nose to the horrifying discovery of what happens to his beloved chickens, life is never boring! Stinky outhouses, mean teachers, and delightful animals pepper this story, but it all comes down to one haunting question…just who are the ghosts, and what do they mean?
