Book Description Five giant sisters meet their match in one tiny baby! Back when folks first discovered granite, five burly sisters ruled the mountains of New Hampshire. No problem was too big for those women. But when one sister carvesa real live baby out of granite, a big problem appears that is, you might say, too small. Lil Fella wailed so much that no one north of the Kancamagus Highway could eat, sleep, or plow. "Do something!" everyone demanded. But what? The five gals, who are strong enough to move mountains, are flummoxed . . . until a young backwoods girl named Nellie offers a small, simple suggestion. With its droll humor and inventive, witty pictures, this uproarious tall tale is a true original - one not to be missed.
