Inhaltsangabe: "In a pig's eye!" Joe Watson's best friend Paul responds when Joe finally breaks down and confesses he is afraid something is going haywire in his beloved grandfather's brain. In a pig's eye and going haywire are two of the dozens of funny country sayings Judge Benjamin Franklin Bennington, Joe's grandfather, has taught the boys over the years. Old saws, the judge called them, because they cut straight to the truth without going around Robin Hood's barn, which of course means going the long away around. "Old saws hold the truth like a cup holds water, and the truth will always out," he tells Joe and Jim Paul often. And Joe and Jim Paul, certified George Washington School Truth Tellers, believe him...until the judge begins to forget the words as well as the wisdom of his old saws. Then the truth begins to unravel like a sweater caught on barbwire, and the boys discover that the lies they tell themselves are the hardest lies of all to swallow.
Über den Autor: Molly Levite Griffis is an inveterate letter writer. Not those boring one-size-fits-all E-mail things, but real letters transported by snails. Like the heroine of Five Two, Five Blue (She is, in fact, that little girl grown up), Molly grew up in the small Oklahoma town of Apache in a soft and gentle time. Reluctantly, Molly abandoned her lead pencil and Big Chief tablet and adapted to a typewriter. But the same technological advances which took away the Central telephone operator and gave us rapid dial, have eliminated production of typewriter ribbons. She is down to her last three. Luckily, she is a founding member of The Lead Pencil Club. So when the ribbons run out, she'll happily go back to her Big Chief tablet and pencil. Molly is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and lives in Norman, Oklahoma. She has two grown children, a red-haired daughter, who was the inspiration for Rachel, and a son who lives in the Czech Republic.
