"The book is about children visiting their grandma in her town every summer. The stories jump from year to year from the 1920s to 1930s. Stories include Mouse in the Milk, which is a story where Grandma tries to get the better of the Cowgill brothers, Centennial Summer, Things with Wings, and the Phantom Brakeman. Each chapter begins the same and ends the same when the children get off and on the train. Four stars for this one. Reason is because in some of the chapters Grandma lies."

Timothy, age 12
