Alvinaís grandmothers donít seem to have much in common. One likes brass bands, the other likes Calypso. One likes Jack and the Beanstalk, the other likes Anansi. One grew up in rural England, the other in Trinidad. They both come to take care of Alvina when her parents go away for their tenth anniversary, and initially their styles and tastes clash. But their love for Alvina helps them to overcome their differences and even begin to enjoy each otherís company as the three spend time together. Alvina, a biracial child with a white dad and a Black mom, offers a spirited account of her two grandmothers finding their common ground. (KTH)  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
