This is a picture book on how to play “42,” a Texas domino game. It’s a game that makes funny faces come on my mama. Sometimes she laughs uncontrollably. Linda, in the second picture, shows how you can hide your dominos from the other players. She doesn’t know we can all see her hand now. In the last picture, it looks like only Paul is paying attention. Just watch Paul and you’ll soon know how to play. If you want to have fun, watch the lady in blue.
There are no 42 instructions in Ebenezer and Ninety-Eight Friends, but there are lots of stories about my mom, Georgia Lou.
