Tucked away in her Appalachian hollow, Jamie Kay is too young for school,but she already knows that her Pa's automobile junkyard is magic. Others might see onlygenerators next to carburetors. Or rusty fenders in a corner. But Jamie sees somethingmore. Like her very own hubcap garden and her secret school bus'her bus doesn't havetires, but it surely can fly. What Jamie really wishes for, though, is a friend. Someone like the new boy in town,Robert Haines. But all Robert does is tease Jamie: "Hey, JUNK PILE!" The other kidsalways laugh. Even her own brother. How can she prove to Robert that there is magic in the junkyard? The only way sheknows how. Kimberly Bulcken Root's charming illustrations give warmth and spirit to LadyBorton's deceptively simple story of life in Appalachia. Junk Pile! is a book thatcelebrates the contagious power of imagination and the beauty that can be found in eventhe most unlikely of places.
