Description

A Newbery Honor author weaves a delightful tale of the 1950s rural South. For the four Collins girls, life is about as predictable as the fading curls on their dollar perms. But things get interesting when their cousin Tadpole comes to town, bringing a talent for playing his old guitar and a knack for finding fun, even in chores.

Professional reviews

"Well, here we are--as Winston Churchill Birch (Tadpole) would say. It's rural Kentucky in 1955, and the four Collins girls and their mother are making it as best they can. When they get a surprise visit from their favorite cousin, Tadpole, the summer seems to be looking up, but Tad is fleeing an abusive uncle, who is determined to get his nephew back. How can the Collins family keep Tadpole safe and keep their own heads above water? Kate Forbes delivers her clear, youthful voice as the character of the youngest Collins daughter, Carolina, who relates this poignant story from her point of view. J.M.S.
