The stories on this wiki are based on one India wrote as the third story in the series begun by Megan McDonald back in the early 1990's. Ms. McDonald invented a Grampa who is telling stories of "the olden days" to his grandchildren, and he ends each story with a teaser to the next book. She wrote two books in the series, the first of which was The Potato Man. Her last book in the series was The Great Pumpkin Switch. That one ends with Grampa talking about a lucky penny, and several of our fourth graders chose to try their hand at writing the third story here. India ended hers with a teaser about a brown box. These stories tell that tale.
