Synopsis: Award-winning playwright, performer, and artist Leslye Orr has turned her talents toward the "possibilities of disabilities" in her first children's book. The People on the Corner centers on five neighborhood friends who learn how good neighbors can include everyone. When they learn that new people are moving into the house on the corner, they decide to greet them. Many of the 12 members of the big blended Long family (including their three-legged cat named Trike) have disabilities - as well as capabilities. But the five friends have doubts and hold a secret club meeting in their fort "to see if the Long kids..." as the rhyming cadence in the book recounts, "...are going to be our sort." While spying on their new neighbors, they discover the Longs have an amazing three-story, dream-come-true fort with an elevator on a rope and two lookout towers. The Longs spot the spies and invite them to play baseball, by their rules; rules that equalize all the players. The five pals discover that the Longs never wondered about what their abilities were and that they are just good neighbors because whether they have "...block parades or neighborhood plays, everyone's included."
