Note This books by Carl Sandburg features whimsical, sometimes melancholy stories, which often use nonsense language that were originally created for his daughters.

The "Rootabaga" stories were created by Sandburg as he wanted to create "American fairy tales" to match American childhood as he thought that the European stories involving royalty and knights etc. were inappropriate. His stories area a fictionalization of the American Midwest featuring trains, farms and corn fairies etc . Many of his stories are told by the Potato Face Blind Man, an old minstrel of the Village of Liver-and-Onions who hangs out in front of the local post office. Simply Charming !
