Celebrated storyteller, Mary Cook has been delighting both listening and reading audiences for years with her remembrances of growing up
on the family farm during the Depression years.
Originally broadcast by the CBC, Mary’s everpopular “Thirties” stories, told in the voice of seven-year-old Mary Haneman, have spawned
nine best-selling books.
A Bubble off Plumb is a collection of Mary’s most requested stories: audience favourites from her radio broadcasts and personal appearances, her original books—now rare treasures that include Time to Blow out the Lamp and View From the West Hill.
