I Know a Lady: 7

Charlotte Zolotow, James P. Stevenson. Puffin Books, $5.99 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-14-050550-4

A little girl describes the old woman who befriends the children in her neighborhood, supplying them with the fruits of her garden and the treats of her kitchen. In PW's words, ""Zolotow's quiet, lyrical style infuses her story with a lasting appeal. Stevenson's delicate pictures perfectly fit the events simply and eloquently described.'' (4-8)
