All those who live "Over the Hill on the Yellow Brick Road" are growing older and figuring out where they belong in the world. In this whimsical collection of adult conversations, silliness is woven around the heartfelt thoughts and painful feelings we have as we begin to wrinkle and crinkle. The conversations take place in an allegorical land, where The Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe is now an empty nester and has mixed feelings about downsizing to a sandal. The aging Tooth Fairy talks about slowing down and becoming an Implant Fairy. A five-hundred-year-old tree still wants to feel part of the world, though he's too fragile to carry birds on his branches, and a loaf of stale bread faces age discrimination and searches for ways to continue to bring out the best in herself. Each conversation strikes a brilliant balance between humor and spirituality.

About the Author

Author Cathi Turow, a former, longtime staff writer for Sesame Street, brings a clever tone to a mature, mystical land that will make you laugh, cry, and never look at aging quite the same way. It’s a transitional place. A place to find your spark and a place to uncover the force within us that carries us through all of life. the result? Maybe we’re all still evolving and part of something bigger.
