Summary
  • When Aunt Callie sends Cassie Logan and her brothers for medicine, the four children head nervously for the Wallace store despite their parents' warnings never to go there. And sure enough they find themselves bracing for trouble as they witness Mr. Tom Bee, an old black man, calling the white storekeeper by his first name. The year is 1933, the place Mississippi, and any child knows that certain things just aren't done. What follows is shocking and unforgettable -- but not at all what the children, the former slave, or the storekeeper expect. Once again Mildred Taylor has drawn on stories her father told her about his boyhood to create a book that will leave no reader unmoved. Max Ginsberg's drawings capture all the sensations of that hot, tense, and fateful afternoon. - Back cover
  • Four children witness a confrontation between an elderly black man and a white storekeeper in rural Mississippi in the 1930s
