Author: Monalisa DeGross
Publisher: Hyperion books
Book Size: 21.6 x 1 x 26.4 cm
Roddy loves to bring out the old family photo album and listen to Granddaddy tell stories about his long-ago days as an arraber, a fruit and vegetable vendor. With his horse-drawn wagon laden with the freshest produce, Granddaddy would ride down the cobblestoned streets and narrow brick alleys of Baltimore, singing out his special calls to customers. This lyrical picture book celebrates the tradition of colourful street vendors, the art of vivid story-telling, and most of all the warm relationship between grandfather and grandson.
