Summary
Eight-year-old Ernestine returns to visit relatives on the North Carolina farm where she was born
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Gloria Pinkney's atmospheric and loving first book was inspired by her own experiences of traveling from her home in the city to visit relatives on a North Carolina farm. When the young heroine is challenged by her male cousin about her "citified" ways, she wonders if she will ever fit in. The book is lavishly illustrated by the author's husband, award-winning artist Jerry Pinkney.
