Jar of coins is full, the day has come to buy the chair - the big, fat, comforable, wonderful chair they have been saving for
Chair that will replace the one that was burned up - along with everything else - in the terrible fire
Book of love and tenderness filled with the affirmation of life
Young girl tells how she, her mother, and her grandmother save up all of their spare coins in a big glass jar toward the day when they will buy a much-needed easy chair (Their old furniture and their possessions were destroyed in a fire)
If the plot is scant-after the jar fills up, mother, daughter, and grandmother buy the chair and bring it home-the atmosphere of anticipation and family warmth is strong
Williams' illustrations are energetic watercolor paintings brimming with color and a cozy, indulgent expressionism, intense roses, blues, yellows, and greens vie for attention in the pictures' blocky compositions
Striking, offbeat backdrop for a loving story
