Family. (Books for children: fiction).
FAMILY Il. by Janice Lee Porter. ISBN 1-57505-485-X. Minneapolis,
MN: Carolrhoda Books. 32 pp. $15.95. Young Hope is excited about her
family's annual get-together at Aunt Poogee's house. This
year's dinner will be extra special for Hope because she is
bringing a surprise dessert--peppermint pickles! Readers will enjoy this
poignant and delightful family tale grounded in the theme of acceptance.
A sequel to her first children's book, Hope, Monk's Family is
clearly another "must-have" title. Porter's glorious
illustrations delight. Ages 5-8. Reviewed by Eileen Shultz, Kutztown
