    Book Description:
    Whooo-ooo! Train’s a’ coming! James can’t wait to get on board and go visit his uncle way up north in New York City. But he also just wishes he could take a little bit of home along with him-things like baseball games, and the special birthday cake Mama always makes. Will Uncle Romie, who’s some kind of artist, know about things like that?

    Young readers will feel as if they’re discovering the city’s wonders, and making an unexpected friend, right along with James in this vibrant story, expressively illustrated by Coretta Scott King Award winner Jerome Lagarrigue.

    A how-to section on storytelling collages and a short biography of Romare Bearden are included.
