About this title


A young girl describes the music she hears in the cries of various vendors on the streets of Charleston, South Carolina.

From Booklist:

Ages 4^-8. As with their previous collaboration, Ragtime Tumpie (1989), Schroeder and Fuchs beautifully evoke a neglected facet of pre^-World War II African American life. All day long, Delia hears the music of Charleston, South Carolina. She finds it in the sounds of raindrops, the croaking of bullfrogs, and the squeaking of the rusty iron gate. Most musical of all are the shouts--the short, rhythmic songs of street vendors and work crews. From the cheery morning cries of the "Vegetubble Maumas" ("Red rose to-may-toes! / Green peas! Green peas!" ) to the lonely evening call of the Charcoal Man ("Char-coal! Dime a bucket! / I walk in de moon light, / I walk in de starlight, / I lay dis body down. . . ." ), the shouts frame the Charleston day. Luminous oil paintings in ruddy golds and browns portray not only the criers, but also the heat and haze of the Charleston streets. A brilliant smile, a pair of bright eyes, an azalea-pink dress glow against smoky backgrounds. Further information and sources for the shouts are provided in an author's note. An irresistible tribute to a vanished urban lyricism. Leone McDermott
