Based on an old folktale from the American South, this rollicking picture book full of endearing characters will have children eagerly joining in on the refrain: "And one fine trade it is!"
How-do! How-do! Georgy Piney Woods wants to trade a horse for a shiny silver dollar so that his daughter can buy a wedding dress. First he trades the horse for a fat brown cow. Then he trades the cow for an old hound dog. He makes one fine trade after another, but will the peddler ever trade for a silver dollar so that his daughter can have her wedding?
