They came from Virginia in a rainbow-colored station wagon that smelled like a real car. When they arrived, there was lots of hugging, smiles, and laughter. They stayed for weeks and weeks, helping tend the garden and eating up all the strawberries and melons. They brought their banjos and played their guitars, there was a bass and even a fiddle.
When they finally had to leave, everyone was sad, but not for long because they all knew they’d be together again next summer.
You may be interested to know that this book is a snapshot into Cynthia Rylant's life growing up in a small country town in West Virginia. She used to love when her relatives came for an extended visit!
