Miss Pinkeltink’s Purse
Patty Brozo, Ana Ochoa (Illustrator), Tilbury House Publishers (DECEMBER) Hardcover $17.95 (36pp), 978-0-88448-626-8
Funny Miss Pinkeltink hauls her oversized bag around town, handing out treasures to folks she meets before settling down to sleep outside in the park. With her patchwork dress, messy gray bun, and reading glasses, Miss Pinkeltink resembles everyone’s favorite granny in this rhyming, warmhearted introduction to charity, social outreach, and homelessness. It includes links to organizations created by young people and helpful tips for families and children interested in making a difference in their communities.
