Illustrated by James Ransome
A young girl looks forward to the day she gets to go visit her father. It only happens once a month and it’s a very special day.
Where it takes place:
In Brooklyn and in someplace north of New York City.
Where I wrote it:
In Brooklyn and at The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire.
Why I wrote it:
Because once a month when I was a little girl, I would go upstate and visit my favorite uncle. I remember those days well and wanted to write about them. This book isn’t completely autobiographical but there is a lot of me in it.
