The Hula-Hoopin' Queen
This is a heartwarming story about a close knit community and kinship. Godin paints a rich story with clever lively language. Effortlessly, Godin brings together themes of healthy competition and putting one’s own wishes aside for other’s happiness. Newton’s colorful collages completes the picture with paintings of busy streets, stores and curbside scenes. Full of character and spunk, this book has a wonderful ending.
