When a giant new supermarket moves into the neighborhood, Lucy’s grandpa plans to sell his store. But with the help of friends and neighbors, Lucy is determined to keep this from happening. In another of her lovely and lively portraits of community caring, Dyanne DiSalvo tells the timely story of what can happen when the whole neighborhood gets involved.
A portion of the author’s royalties are donated to Haddon Heights Good Neighbors, a local non-profit organization that helps neighbors in need.
“…the bright illustrations reflect the mood of the story, convey Lucy’s gutsy determination, and celebrate good old-fashioned community spirit. ”
