Way Down DeepSpring 2007 Fiction
The town of Way Down Deep is wonderfully old-fashioned and whimsical, and is peopled with residents by the names of Mr. Doctor (the doctor) and Mrs. Doctor (the dentist), Robber Bob (an almost-bank robber) the Reeders (including Peter and Cedar) and animals like Jethro, Ruby’s pet goat, who likes to climb onto the roofs of cars so he can better watch the world go by. There is Busy Street, Yonder Mountain and the Path to Way-Up-That-A-Way. Most importantly, the loving and caring folks of Way Down give Ruby the time and space to find out who she is and where she came from, and to decide where her future lies.
