Summaries and Reviews
Summary
A charming and hilarious coming-of-age story relates the trials and tribulations of two Mississippi chicken thieves--nine-year-old Ruby Lavender and her grandmother, Miss Eula. An ALA Notable Children's Book. Reissue.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Ruby Lavender and Miss Eula are a pretty good team, for a couple of chicken thieves. What other granddaughter-grandmother duo could successfully drive the getaway car for chickens rescued from a journey to the slaughterhouse, paint a whole house shocking pink, and operate their own personal secret-letter post office?
So, when Miss Eula leaves for Hawaii to visit her new grandbaby, Ruby is sure that she will have a lonely, empty, horrible summer in boring old Halleluia, Mississippi. What happens instead? She makes a new friend, saves the school play, writes plenty of letters to her favorite (and only) grandmother . . . and finally learns to stop blaming herself for her grandfather's death. Not too bad, for a nine-year-old.
