Relates a child's activities in the heat of a summer day punctuated by a thunderstorm
Colorful photo-collage illustrations depict an African American girl living in the city on a day so hot that she has to eat two grape popsicles in a row to cool off. The girl attempts to fry an egg on the sidewalk, but when that fails, draws chalk pictures instead. Can a thunderstorm bring some relief to a hot summer day?
