It's wintertime again, and Jamaica has to wear her brother Ossie's hand-me-down boots. She finds herself envious of her friend Brianna's pink boots with the fuzzy cuffs, and Brianna teases her about her ugly, old "boy" boots. But one word brings reconciliation for the two friends.
Juanita Havill is the author of many picture books including several stories about Jamaica. She and her husband have two grown children. Anne Sibley O'Brien has illustrated more than twenty books for children, including the Jamaica stories. She has two grown children and lives with her husband and cat in Maine.
