"I had seen this book at my local library, checked it out and shared it with my two granddaughters, 6 & 4 on a visit. We all loved it!!! They live about 3-4 hours away and now when we talk on the phone we enjoy remembering and reciting from memory some of the words/phrases from this book. It is one of those books that just stay with you. After their visit, I had to return the book to the library. I went right on Amazon and ordered my copy. Thanks

"I really enjoyed this book. The story sounded a lot like one I had heard as a kid many years ago, but this one was different. It had a sweeter ending. It is 30 pages long with pretty good text and very good illustrations.

The story is about an old husband-wife farming team who is poor and frugal. One day when their food supply was about to run out they found a large magical iron pot buried on their land which duplicates whatever is put into it. They put some necessaries in the pot and some money - out came twice as much as was put in. The most interesting thing was that the pot worked on people just as it did on things.

I probably would have liked the book better if the main characters had not been so poor and simple. I did not see the point in it. But they seemed like such nice people. 5 stars!            FOR MORE INFO
