"Company Comes A-Callin" is the third installment in the Possum Squat series. It's the story of a traveling revival that comes to Possum Squat one summer's day. Everybody's kin comes from miles around to witness the show. Mertyle's cousin Mildred and those Cleanhopper boys have better than a good ole time at the year-round spring slide before heading off to join everyone else at the revival. Needless to say, you'll want to read the whole story to find out exactly what went on at that revival. I will tell you this--Preacher Coon got more than he bargained for when he pitched his tent. "Company Comes A-Callin" is beautifully illustrated by Dan Paul Ungureanu. His colorful and expressive characters and Lucianne's story will engage and delight readers of all ages.
About the Author
Lucianne DeLong was born and bred in the "Boonies" of the Deep South, and the experiences of her childhood seem to be completely foreign to most everyone. As a young girl, she bucked hay, cleaned chicken houses, and dressed hogs for five dollars a day - a long day. Television, radio, and other technologies that made life easier were not available to her or her family. What she learned, she learned from books or from experience. Reading a book was required at dinnertime, and absolutely no talking was allowed. When Lucianne wasn't working on a farm during the summer, she was working her family's fields and orchard or helping her daddy with chores from sun-up to sundown. The mother of five children and an entrepreneur, Lucianne loves working with kids of all ages. As a private tutor for decades, she found that when she talked to her students about her childhood experiences, they were always extremely fascinated. In fact, they were in awe of them. Hence the birth of "Possum Squat," an enchanting series of children's books about a culture that is quite unknown and misunderstood.
