Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615701965, Paperback)

The Swope family has everything they could possibly want to make 1920 a good year -- a Model T motorcar, a telephone, indoor plumbing, electricity, and a successful grocery store -- but when the Ku Klux Klan burns down Mr. Swope's store in a fiery reaction to his paid black employee, Watson, the Swopes are suddenly thrown upon hard times. Everett and Charles Swope, ages eight and seven respectively, are emboldened to help their family through this crisis, and with the aid of their cousin Clara and trusty dog Poncho, they discover the magical capabilities of a family heirloom -- a periwinkle turban. Granting them any talent they wish for (and sometimes ones they don't wish for), the turban is right atop their heads for each adventure they embark upon in their quest to solve the family's money troubles. What they'll soon learn, however, is that some talents may be more trouble than they're worth ... Roar into the 1920's with the Swope children -- an age where adventure, resourcefulness, and imagination ruled the day! * Buy any of Matthew Mainster's books in print and get the e-book version FREE thanks to Kindle Matchbook!
