Now We Can Have A Wedding!

Sallie is getting married and the whole building is going to celebrate! From Mrs. Haru in 4C to Mr. Gonzales in 14B, each is planning a special contribution to the party.
As Sallie's little sister travels from apartment to apartment, she helps her neighbors prepare scrumptious wedding delicacies from around the world: tamales from Mexico, Tartar wedding pie from Russia, harmonizing steamed cakes from China, and much more. Sallie's sister wants to make something, too, but what? At the last minute she discovers that a small but important detail has been forgotten--one that can be her own special wedding surprise.

Judy Cox' jubilant tribute to wedding customs from many cultures and DyAnne DiSalvo Ryan's buoyant, intricately patterned pictures caputre the excitement of sharing a joyous occasion with friends, neighbors, and family.
