Whether it s possible that John Soncrant who owns and operates Hensley s could somehow know just what his patrons need is debatable But anyone who s patronized a general store like his the kind that used to be found in many rural outposts as well as in urban neighborhoods but seem to be fast disappearing has probably come to find that those general stores had just about everything In her usual inimitable style this gifted storyteller provides several examples of Old John s ability to read his customers and figure out what they need In particular she focuses on three new residents who have recently moved to the area and are experiencing financial challenges Not only does Old John provide complimentary bags of candy but he also trades fishing euipment for the older girl s medical care helps their mother find a way to bring in extra income and brings something in need of love into their lives By the time the story concluded I was ready to believe that Old John could do anything and I wanted to visit his store Based on the actual store and storekeeper this story just might make readers believe in a little magic as well as restoring their faith in humanity As usual the artist uses pencils and markers to create her amazing illustrations that are filled with emotion and wonder as well as age spots and wrinkles Readers will want to check out the endpapers too since they feature Polacco herself interacting with Old John while walking her dogs
