A young girl tells her friend about the traveling store her grandfather used to visit when he was a child. At the time her grandfather grew up, few people had cars, so the store would come to them--a pickup truck filled with wonderful things to buy. Inspired by the past, the girls decide to set up their own traveling store. Illustrated with watercolor paintings and colored pencil drawings.
