But their good intentions are misunderstood, until they discover just the right way to pay for the hat that Eula's had her eye on.

A unique piece of Americana." --"Kirkus Reviews," pointer review"In this moving picture book, the hatred sometimes engendered by racial and religious differences is overpowered by the love of people who recognize their common humanity." --"Booklist," starred, boxed review"The text conveys a tremendous pride of heritage as it brims with rich images from her characters' African American and Russian Jewish cultures--A tribute to the strength of all family bonds." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review
