In the days when trousers had buttons, the tubby father of three marriageable daughters burst his only buttons off his britches and into the fire. His three comely but not overly bright daughters set off to rescue their now bedridden father from his plight.

With his inimitable, light, scraggly style and humor, Cole has given us a charmingly foolish, youngest sister who procures both buttons and beau.
