Synopsis

Tumbleweed Baby by Anna Myers

A large, loving family in the 1930s Dust Bowl finds a tumbleweed baby -- a wild baby. The other children discover the ways she fits and doesn't fit into the family, ultimately deciding her wildness makes her one of them. The voice feels like a classic tall tale and it pairs perfectly with the dreamy, warm art from master illustrator Charles Vess.
