This book was published by the third grade students and their teachers at the Edward Fenn school in the 2000-2001 school year. The students worked with author Rebecca Rule to develop the stories and with their art teacher to create the pictures. The writing and publishing of the book was made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

Amos A. Moose was the flag man. “Ready, set, go,” he said.
They were off.
“Amos asked one of the workers, ‘What happened here? We were just over here to check out the place and there was hardly anyone around?’ The worker said, ‘The population is changing very fast. The train keeps bringing more and more people every day.”
With the arrival of the railroad, Gorham’s population increased steadily.
One snowy, foggy morning, Amos A. Moose was eating some maple bark on the side of the road when he saw a salt truck go by. He said, “This bark is disgustingly moldy! I like salt better than bark.”
In Gorham, New Hampshire the weather is unpredictable. We may have snowy mornings even in the spring.
