This is a tender and lyrical portrayal of the special relationship between a young girl and her great grandmother. "Quinnie Blue, did your mama teach you about the family tree?"
In this exceptional picture book, Dinah Johnson's expressive language joyously invokes the spirit of an African American community. James Ransome's beautiful paintings depict in turn the past and present generations of a family, and a special relationship that connects them. Quinnie Blue is a wonderful celebration of family roots and the passing on of heritage.
