This book is 31 pages long. Mari Sandoz was still a young girl at home with her mother and father (Jules Sandoz) when he gets an inheritance of about $2000 and spends it all on a phonograph and hundreds of records instead of the mortgage, bills or warm boots for the children. However, people from as far away as 60 miles come to their home to hear and see the phonograph. Even people Jules hates are allowed in the house as the music is for everyone. At the end, Mari accidently lets one of the pigs get into the house and the pig knocks over the cabinet with a lot of records in it. The pig tramples or eats several records. Mari said she got her worst beating but it was the loss of the records that hurt worse and for longer. This one was for one of my book clubs - I had not heard of this book before.
