Once again Greenfield displays commendable sensitivity in this story about an African-American boy who must cope with a beloved grandmother’s illness.’—Publishers Weekly. This poignant exploration of a child’s feelings of loss, sorrow, and hope features a closely knit African-American family and community, lovingly depicted in paintings. A wonderful sense of neighborhood permeates the pages of this touching book.’—SLJ.
