Compiled for the first time, here are all of Newbery Award- winning author Richard Peck's previously published short stories and two brand-new ones. From comedy to tragedy to historical to contemporary; from "Priscilla and the Wimps," Peck's first short story, to "Shotgun Cheatham's Last Night Above Ground," which inspired both A Long Way from Chicago and A Year Down Yonder, to "The Electric Summer," Peck's jumping-off point for Fair Weather, readers will thrill at Peck's engaging short fiction. Complete with the author's own notes on the stories as well as tips and hints for aspiring writers and two new stories, this vibrant and varied collection offers something for everyone.
