by Alice Walker & illustrated by Catherine Deeter. In a short story produced as a picture book, a well-known novelist (The Color Purple) depicts the loving relationship between Mr. Sweet, "a diabetic and an alcoholic and a guitar player," and the girl who narrates the story. Finally, on Mr. Sweet's 90th birthday, as the girl is completing her doctorate, she gets word that Mr. Sweet is dying for the last time-and hurries home from Massachusetts in time for a poignant farewell. Touched with the right sort of sentiment, Walker's story is overflowing with compassion, humor, and good sense.
