Pub. Date:
It all started when Uncle Frank came for a visit...and stayed. and stayed, and stayed. It seemed nothing would rouse him from his comfortable spot in front of the TV. That is, until the day he hung an old coat hanger on a stick and picked up some unusual signals emanating from the backyard. All at once Uncle Frank was bound and determined to find whatever was buried out there, no matter how long it took. So he started to dig a hole -- this really big hole -- and what happened next would make more than just family history.

In this hip, off-the-wall story, Matthew McElligott pairs a child's-eye view of eccentric adult behavior with brightly-colored drawings for hilarious results.
