When Catherine the Great and I Were Eight!

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Giselle Potter. The neighborhood camaraderie from Three Cheers for Catherine the Great! continues in this summertime sequel. Here all eight tenants in young Sara's apartment building cram into an unairconditioned car and head for the beach. Potter's distinctively painted figures reinforce the characters' idiosyncrasies; and Sara's spirited Russian grandmother, Catherine the Great, serves as a solid center to the ensemble.
