High on the roof of an apartment building is a garden where neighbors come to laugh, to dance, and to share stories of helping others, breakfasts of challah and herring, and, once a summer, a Roof Party! Surrounded by loving adults, a girl with cabbage curls feels she lives on top of the world in paradise. But something is about to change. Mama s belly is growing bigger and bigger! Can the girl share her mama and papa, and her wonderful rooftop world, with a new baby?
Based on the author s own New York City childhood, this warm and spirited story with bold art in the style of public murals is a joyous and heartfelt celebration of community.
