Agatha May Walker does
not want to live
the busiest street in town!
Rushmore Boulevard is the busiest street in
Agatha May Walker decides to do something about it. Armed with a batch
of sweet and spicy gingersnaps, a wingback chair, a card table, and a
Parcheesi set, Agatha and her best friend, Eulalie Scruggs, take to the
street to reclaim it from the noisy cars, motorcycles, and giant trucks
that rumble by all day long.
Can these lifelong friends convince their neighbors to stop and smell
the honeysuckle, listen to the mariachi band, and best of all, sample
the sweet and spicy gingersnaps?
and sweet-spirited story of
urban transformation is nicely complemented by McMenemy’s brightly
colored and energetic mixed-media
