Everyone in town knows Miz Berlin. With that big black umbrella with the silver spokes, she walks the block, and talks, and sometimes even tells stories to herself! One little girl isn't satisfied just to watch from afar. One day she catches up to Miz Berlin, who goes tight on telling her stories as if her little companion had been there all the while: block-long stories and two-day stories about how she caught crawdads the day the sky rained feathers, about the day the flood rose right to her door. And about her own birthing day in a humble cabin. She doesn't seem one whit surprised that the little girljumps in, stepping right into Miz Berlin's stories. In Miz Berlin Walks, illustrated with Floyd Cooper's rich oil-wash paintings, Jane Yolen shares the magic of story-telling, and the magic of a sharing between generations that leads to real friendship.With illustrations by Floyd Cooper
