Does this sound familiar to you?

Angela Throgmorton was exhausted. The time had come to make a few changes.

Old Tom had been a beautiful baby. But now he was big enough to help with the housework.

So Angela made a list of things for him to do.


...All of a sudden Old Tom felt sick.

We have a daughter that mysteriously develops leg pains when she is given any jobs to do.

We love "Old Tom" books in our house. They are written and illustrated by Leigh Hobbs.
