Nine-year-old Garnet Linden finds a silver thimble while playing in the creek one afternoon. When the rain finally comes that night, ending a long and worrisome drought, she just knows that the thimble must be magic. Sure enough, Garnet’s summer is full of fun and exciting adventures, including meeting new friends, and even winning a ribbon at the county fair.
