Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976027100, Paperback)From the moment of her birth, Constance Kathleen seemed too formal a name for such a precocious little girl, so she soon became known as Corky. From investigating a tomato worm in the garden to drawing a line down the middle of her bedroom, Corky dealt with her environment in creative ways. Corky’s older sister Diane set a precedent of impeccable behavior. Dottie, the enthusiastic and typical 1950's mother, kept Corky in line with ritualistic bath-time punishments and unwavering consistency. Walter, Corky’s soft-spoken father, taught her of duty and honor to country and community. Both gave her the comforting feel of security and love. Although Corky’s love for animals sometimes caused heartache, the deaths and disappointments made her a stronger person. Each experience taught Corky a valuable lesson of life. Through all her trials and tribulations, Corky becomes ready and able to take on Junior High School.
