Description
In swirling, richly textured woodcuts, David Frampton frames and illustrates a poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, "Fortune," about a sweltering day from his boyhood in Brooklyn, New York, for readers up to 8. Lawrence remembers the summer heat being deliciously relieved by sympathetic firemen spraying water over him and his friends—or was it just how he wished it had been?

"Frampton's exuberant pictures match well with an equally vivacious poem. A few introductory pages set the scene, showing a bit of what life was like in New York City long ago, including such novelties as doctors making house calls and children lying on the floor listening to the radio.... Frampton's signature woodcuts are wonderful, balancing cool and warm colors, and also managing to look both blocky and fluid at the same time."—School Library Journal
