Noni is scared walking home with Grandaddy
at night in the city. But Grandaddy knows just how to help.
He tells her the story of another night, down home in Alabama,
when he himself got the frights. It was the very same night
that Grandaddy first met Grandma Ismay. And it was the night
of the tambourine moon...
Joy Jones celebrates the magic of love, family, and stories
in a poetic text. And Terry Widener's rich, lyrical illustrations
are as warm as Grandaddy's mellow, comforting voice. TAMBOURINE
MOON will make readers feel snug and peaceful--just like
Noni does after hearing Grandaddy's story.
