Harry Miller's Run

(3) 1-3 Illustrated by Salvatore Rubbino. Elderly Harry recounts a remarkable boyhood run to child runner Liam before Liam's own race. The old Brit vividly describes the day's heat, the pain, the meeting of a girl who would become his sweetheart, and the rewards at race's end: the sea and a giant ice cream. Rubbino's charming illustrations are in grayscale for the present and full color for the well-remembered past.
