Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Why have a lemonade stand when you can have a story stand? That's what Rufus, a boy with a big imagination, decides. And once he's in business, he starts creating little gems for his friends and family. Millie and Walter trade a shell for his story called "Why Orange Is the Best Color." Rufus writes little sister Annie a story for her birthday about a girl who shrinks to the size of a teacup. Sara trades flowers for a story about a family of buttons. And then they all sit down and read the wonderful stories together.

Rather than a lemonade stand, Rufus sets up a story stand one summer and makes a series of trades with his friends--a story for a shell, for a kitten, for a surprise, and one more as a special birthday gift for his sister.

Horn Book Review

Rufus decides to set up a "story stand" for the summer. As each customer stops by, Rufus writes and illustrates a story unique to that person, with entertaining results; as payment he asks for a shell from the beach, a kitten, and a surprise. This quiet story celebrates creativity and generosity. Mixed-media art in a rich palette includes Rufus's illustrated stories. (c) Copyright 2016.
