Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This won't hurt a bit." In rural North Carolina, in 1951, despite parental reassurances, a typhoid shot hurt. It hurt even more when you saw who would be administering the shot--Miss Winnie, a large, dictatorial nurse who had been "especially built by the nursing school so she would never blow away in a hard wind." In this hilarious epic tale, our young hero learns three valuable lessons: avoiding pain only heightens it; a mother's wrath can hurt worse than a shot; and growing up sometimes involves choosing the lesser of two evils.

Synopsis:

By the time a child is seven or so he learns that there are certain promises a parent may not keep: We'll get a puppy soon. It's bedtime, you can finish that game up tomorrow. And especially, This won't hurt a bit!
