Mama wishes for a milking cow, so Papa finds his pocket knife and heads toward town with his son Samuel. When the pocket knife becomes two lanterns, then a gilded book of stories, a sheep, and more, Samuel begins to understand his father's resourcefulness and respect for the needs and cares of others. A charming story where a young boy grows in wisdom, patience, and maturity and is joyfully rewarded.
Publisher Summary
A tender story of a father-son adventure with themes of community and kindness, in short chapters with vivid full-color illustrations, by bestseller and Newbery Honor winner Gary D. Schmidt and acclaimed artist Eugene Yelchin.

In a story of perseverance and determination told with warmth and sparkling with humor, a short winter day finds Samuel and Papa walking a long road on Samuel's first trading trip. Meeting strangers, practicing good manners, and proud to be in Papa's company, Samuel watches and learns as Papa trades up from almost nothing to the milk cow Mama is yearning for. Simple text combines with vivid illustrations for a satisfying tale that will resonate with readers who enjoy an adventure with dad.
