Book 4 of this series has Creekites counting their blessings, and realizing they have many blessings to count. Nine year old John Wesley McCready has worked several jobs during the summer in order to buy his mom a special birthday gift. He has his eyes set on a ruby necklace he saw in the back of a magazine. John Wesley winds up giving the money away to a migrant family that passes through town. When Maggie sees what John Wesley has done she steps in and helps him find another gift for his mother. Mayor Walker has Sandy Bottoms Crane do some more detective work in order to find the family and bring them back to Mossy Creek where a job awaits. Creekites are good about that sort of thing.

The Creekites and their blessings can make you laugh and cry. Poor Polly, the 'townie' who spends a week at her best friend’s house in the country has never used an outhouse. And she isn't about to use one now, no matter how embarrassed she becomes. Polly loves the pullybone of a chicken and lays claim to it at her first dinner in the country, only to have her friend’s cousin lick the pullybone before putting it back on the platter. What Polly does to get even will leave you laughing. ( )
