About this title

Synopsis:

Illustrated in full color. An acclaimed author and an award-winning illustrator unite to create an enchanting conjure tale ideal for both folktale and African-American history collections.  Mama Marina is willing to risk everything and use her conjuring powers to the utmost to free her daughter Sheba from the yoke of slavery.  

From the Back Cover:

"Hooks's account of how Mama Marina manipulates her gift to free Sheba and Sheba's true love, Joe Nathan, is as absorbing as Ransome's accomplished art. Rendered in broad, textured strokes that nonetheless leave room for detail, his emotion-charged paintings depict sweeping panoramas and close-up portraits with equal success." --(starred)Publishers Weekly

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
