Illustrated by Michael McCurdy
Softbound, large format
Picnics, visits from Gypsies, canning vegetables in the kitchen, going to the big city – all this an more filled Lucy’s New England summer way back in the early part of the 20th Century. Donald Hall’s own mother was the girl Lucy, and she told him many, many stories about how life was in her childhood. He has beautifully captured life in those times in a way sure to enchant both children and adults. Michael McCurdy provides softly colored woodcuts that make the story even more wonder-filled.
This is simply lovely family reading – may all your own summer’s be as richly filled as Lucy’s!
