Four children travel with their mother, and when the train arrives in Cottondale, Florida, the summer at Bigmama's house begins Donald Crews brilliantly evokes the sights, sounds, and emotions of a memorable childhood experience.

Beautifully and richly illustrated, this is a wonderful choice for family reading and classroom sharing. A very special book by a superb artist and storyteller.--The Horn Book
