When the Biddle family is orphaned in 1841, the oldest boy, Pippin, decides to become a limner (traveling portrait painter) like his father had been. He desperately needs the funds to keep his three younger sisters from the poorhouse. Unfortunately, he paints his subjects as they appear, not how they want to appear, so he has little success. Wearily, he makes his way back home to Pennsylvania, where his sisters have a wonderful surprise in store for him!

This picture book biography, told in rhyme, will delight fans of bodily-noise humor. Joseph Pujol, the Fartiste, was a real person born in France in 1857. He had an unusual talent: he could make his farts sound like music, animal sounds, sneezes and more. Audiences couldn't get enough of him, and he became a rich, successful performer.

Sang-hee's village is next to a mountain: the first hump in a range of mountains. Every night, his father walks to the top of the mountain and lights a fire so big it can be seen on the next hump. These fires are lit on each hump until the last fire can be seen by the king from his palace. When the king sees the fire, he knows all is well in his kingdom. But one night after his father walks up the mountain, Sang-hee doesn't see the fire. What happened to his father? How will the king know that all is well? What can Sang-hee do to help?
