Synopsis: When Hannah sets out to make something special for her sister, who works to support the family, she doesn't suspect the far-reaching consequences of her gift
From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5 Since her mother's death and her older sister's departure to work in the mills at Lowell, Mass., ten-year-old Hannah finds herself in charge of the house and her three younger sisters. She is discouraged by the drudgery and by her father's inability to pull himself from his grief and make a life for the family. Gifted with energy and a lively imagination, Hannah creates a birthday gift for her sister from a pile of wallpaper. In the process, she awakens her father's interest, develops a business, and brings the whole family together again. This inspiring spare tale evokes a clear picture of family life among the working folks of Massachusetts at the turn of the century. It has qualities that are somewhat reminiscent of MacLachlan's Sarah, Plain and Tall (Harper, 1985) and joins that book in adding to a strong literature for in-between readers. The pen-and-ink wash drawings convey exactly the right warm family feeling. Sally T. Margolis, The Newport Schools, Kensington, Md.
