A picnic in October

Book Cover

Harcourt Brace,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Tony thinks it's dumb to have a picnic in October every year. He thinks it's dumb to go all the way to Liberty Island for a birthday, too. It's too far. And it's too cold. And it's just plain embarrassing. But that's what he thinks before he helps the lady who can't speak English--and before he begins to understand what the Statue of Liberty means to Grandma.
