Cuffy wants to buy a boat someday and become a fisherman like his father. Inorder to earn money, he'll have to do a good business selling his grandma'sdeviled crabs. From the Gullah culture of Georgia's beautiful Sea Islands comes A Net to Catch Time, a warm family story that recounts a day in the lifeof a spirited little boy. Follow Cuffy from FIRST FOWL CROW (5:30 in themorning) when he catches the crabs, to SUN LAY OVER (2:30 in the afternoon) asCuffy watches his grandmother prepare them, to CANDLE LIGHT TIME (twilight)when the island is quiet and the stars come out. Each dazzling spread shows anew time of day, and each time of day has its own lyrical Gullah name. ScottCook's pastels create even more warmth and flavor in lively island hues. Aglossary of Gullah expressions is included.
