    Hardcover Description:

    A tender and lyrical portrayal of the special relationship between a young African-American girl and her grandmother, by an acclaimed author and an award-winning illustrator.

    "Quinnie Blue,
    Did your mama teach you about the family tree?"

    Through a series of thoughtful questions and vivid reflections, a young girl imagines what childhood was like for her grandmother— Hattie Lottie Annie Quinnie Blue—the woman she is named after.

    In this exceptional picture book, Dinah Johnson’s expressive language joyously invokes the spirit of an African-American community. James Ransome’s beautiful paintings depict in turn the past and present generations of a family, and a special relationship that connects the two. Quinnie Blue is a wonderful celebration of family roots and the passing on of heritage.
