Scatterbrain Sam: The obvious reason I love this book is I’m kindred spirits with Sam. We both get a little mixed up at times. Scatterbrain is the motto I go by, whether I like it or not. This is a very cute book and fun for kids to pick out what it not quite right in the pictures.
That Sam! He’s got one heck of a puzzler. Folks are talking about what a scatterbrain he is what with his keeping the cow on the roof, sleeping in his Sunday britches, and eating his soup with a pitchfork. How’s he going to get his brains all gathered together?
He seeks the help of the widder woman to see if she ain’t got a potion that can whip his brains into shape. Turns out she’s brewing a batch of glue stew right then, but Sam’s got to help. In lieu of adding his beloved pets to the ingredients, Sam must solve a few riddles. But his brains are so scattered, it takes one Amazin’ Maisie Mae to help him out – and she’s more than happy to lend Sam her brains.
Read Scatterbrain Sam, adapted from a Welsh folk tale by the clever brain of Ellen Jackson, to find out the exciting, dramatic, and heart-warming culmination of Sam’s quest.
