Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling author of A Stranger For Christmas. If two trains are approaching Cleveland, and one leaves at 1:00 P.M. and travels at 50 mph. . . You thought--you hoped--you'd left them far behind, along with homework assignments, carbon paper, and cafeteria food. But have you noticed that you're still faced with story problems? If you woke up 14 mornings in a row wondering if it was worth it to get out of bed because you felt like you'd been giving 100% to 2 dozen people and getting only 30% in return. . . So how do big boys and girls solve those kind of problems? Told in the straightforward tradition of a classic fable, and illustrated as richly as a favorite children's story, pearson's modern tale will inspire every adult facing his or her own story problems.
