Stewart and Winston were my neighbors.  They were my brothers by a solemn cermony we had performed in their backyard one summer...Their gramma, Eula Mae Walker, was my gramma now.

More than anything in the world, the children want to buy that special Easter bonnet in Mr. Kodinski's shop window for their Miss Eula.  She is always so good to them, and how they love to hear her sing—her voice is like slow thunder and sweet rain.  But the hat costs money, and the children do not have enough.

Then one day, when they are mistakenly accused of throwing eggs at the shopowner's window, they discover just the right way to prove their innocence—and earn money for the hat at the same time.

With her characteristic full, vibrant author-artist Patricia Polacco once again reaches into her childhood and weaves a lasting story of acceptance, trust, and love.
