Book of the Week #50

Grandmother's Guest: The Blue Lady of Wilton by Robin Schoen and Gail Hoar (Peterborough, NH: Hobby Horse Publishing, 2013).

"Based on a true story, this magical book brings history to life with captivating text by Robin Schoen and lush illustrations by Gail Hoar. Readers will delight in the richly patterned details of New England life, from the household furniture to the red brick architecture to the familiar landscape with stone walls and burying ground.
In Grandmother’s Guest, a visit to her grandmother offers young Alex the comfort of curling up in a favorite wing chair; a lesson in reaching out to a misunderstood neighbor, the Blue Lady; and the remarkable discovery of a mended china creamer at auction. But for the Blue Lady to become a part of Alex and her grandmother’s world, one more thing is needed—an act of such innocent kindness that only a granddaughter would think of it." --Publisher's blurb.

Robin Schoen and Gail Hoar both live in Wilton, NH. They will be signing their book at Toadstool Bookshop. Milford on Sunday, December 15th and at Toadstool Bookshop, Peterborough on Saturday, December 21st.
