ISBN: 0-8050-1305-9
Publisher: Henry Holt

 Blow by blow, an admiring account of a busy day feeding an urban neighborhood. Howard and Gracie's joy in their work is almost contagious; Sours's colored pencil illustrations, gleaming with deep orange and warm gold, use dynamic vantage points and convex mirror distortions that expertly lead the eye and convey the constant activity. A slight if affectionate effort, but a strong picture-book debut for Sours. (Picture book. 4-8)
