To Grandma’s House with Barry Yourgrau

Barry YourgrauFrom Barry Yourgrau, author of NASTYbook ("a book of stories for kids which operated like anti-fairy tales," says Yourgrau in his essay from May 2005), comes a short story written exclusively for Powells.com. "To Grandma's House We Go" contains all the signature qualities that have made Yourgrau one of the most popular children's authors of the day... including a climactic twist that will leave your favorite younger reader cackling and wringing her hands with glee!
