Riassunto: In a prequel to Georgia Music, Janetta's mother takes her for a visit to Grandaddy, in the country. "A beautifully told story of friendship between generations."--Kirkus Reviews. "An eye-catching, heart-grabbing jewel."--School Library Journal
Helen V. Griffith lives in Wilmington, Delaware.
In Her Own Words...
"What I like about writing books is that I can sit and think about things that most adults never think about, and it's okay because I'm a children's book writer.
"I can imagine what my dog is dreaming about or what she and my cat discuss when I'm not around. I can design a time machine or make up a tall tale, and nobody says, "Grow up, Helen"--because I'm a children's book writer.
"I was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, and I work in the family business. We're distributors of roofing and siding materials, and I've never yet gotten a story inspiration from that. Most of my ideas seem to come from dogs I have known.
"My grandfather was part of our family and used to read to me a lot-the Sunday funny papers, turn-of-the-century primers, and The Arabian Nights. When I could read for myself, I read fairy tales, dog and horse stories, and comic books by the dozen.
"I started writing poems and the beginnings of novels by the age of seven or eight, but I was forty before I thought about writing for publication.
"For fun, I like reading (especially Anthony Trollope) and birdwatching, and I've just started learning to play old-time fiddle!"
