Description
In this bittersweet tale for readers up to 9, a young girl in the city and her grandfather in the country exchange letters and secret messages. Grampa tells Ruby about the mischievous magpies in his tree and about the magpie song—"one for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl, four for a boy, five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told"—while Ruby tells him about the new baby that is coming. Grampa is not well, however, and he never does make the promised trip to the city. But he leaves a wonderful surprise behind for Ruby to discover. Jim Coplestone's charming cartoon drawings include the letters Ruby and her Grampa write to each other.
