Hot Day on Abbott Avenue

A rhythmic, poetic text by Karen English moves this story from a 'best-friend-breakup day' to a 'forgetting-what-you-were-mad-about day'. Written with sensitivity, humor, and a sense of community, reflected brilliantly in the collage art of Javaka Steptoe, the book speaks eloquently about making peace in the world of little children. Clarion Books published this testimonial to the soothing influence of Double Dutch and blue ice-pops. Honor Book for Younger Children, 2005.
