Summary:

HD Schenk is a maker--an inventor, a builder of things. He wants to show everyone what he can do, and his plan is to build his own computer and enter it in the county fair. To earn money for the parts, HD has promised to clean out his uncle's basement. Simple enough--until a voice starts talking to him about cabbage. Funny thing--it seems that the ghost of his great-great-grandmother is haunting a dusty old pickling crock. And she has a grand plan, too. She wants HD to make her famous recipe for sauerkraut and enter it in the county fair so that she can be declared pickle queen. After some initial shock, HD is willing enough to help. This ghost is family, after all. But a person can only enter one thing at the fair--and only HD can really see and hear his grandmother, which is going to make it hard for her to enter on her own. . . . Kelly Jones spins a wonderfully goofy ghost tale that celebrates creative problem solving, family ties, and makers of every variety.
