MR. BULL and THE AMAZING GRAPE

Mr. Bull and The Amazing Grape tells the story of Mr. Ephraim Wales Bull and his determination to produce a perfect eating grape which he named the "Concord grape." The grape's story is "rooted" in the historic community of Concord, Massachusetts. Mr. Bull, three grape-loving neighborhood children, and a little black dog called BowWow take us on an adventure as they follow the path of the Amazing Grape.

Mr. Bull, friend and neighbor of writers Alcott, Emerson, Hawthorne and Thoreau, was a farmer in Concord during the 1800's. He became known in his community as "the father of the Concord grape" after having spent many years cultivating a hardy and delicious blue-black grape that would thrive and survive in the unpredictable New England climate. Mr. Bull's strong work ethic and dedication to this grape won him a gold medal from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society in the year 1853 for best production of a seedling grape — the Concord.

The illustrations are sure to capture the hearts of both children and adults alike.
