Synopsis

Synopsis

Tres Seymour's lively story is humorously brought to life by Cat Bowman Smith's down-home illustrations.

"Whee-oo!" When Aunt Lou hears there's a county auction coming up, she can't contain her excitement (as her young niece observes). But when she and the family arrive at the auction site, Aunt Lou comes face to face with her long-standing rival, Miss Logsdon. One look makes clear that these ladies can't stand to lose to each other, even when bidding on such dubious treasures as old china, a stuffed groundhog, or a zinc tub. Aunt Lou's niece has her eye on a straw hat — the spitting image of Daddy's — which fits her better than her own hair. But can anyone outbid Aunt Lou and Miss Logsdon when they get going?
