When Brenda Gail discovers that her great-grandfather has crafted a song from his treasured experiences on the mountain, she's eager to follow suit. Will she include egg gathering, an outing with Big Ma, or her feelings of regret when she inadvertently causes harm to the prize hen, Morning Glory? What about pesky Cousin Melvin, who calls her "Shuck Beans"? And how does one put the sweet smells of summer into a song? This thought-provoking story has a mellow narrator in Julia Gibson. She is an eager Brenda Gail, a firm but loving great-grandmother, an irritating Melvin, and an understanding great-grandfather--all while pacing the story gently. A.R.
