Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374349886, Hardcover)

Mimmy and Sophie live in Brooklyn, New York, during the Great Depression. Like most sisters, they have a lot in common, but they're also different: Mimmy dreams of owning an Oldsmobile that she can fix with her own tools, and of growing up to be a trolley driver, while Sophie prefers to talk to her dolls. Sometimes Mimmy and Sophie are best friends, sometimes they aren't. But no matter what, they are always sisters. And although their family may not have enough money for a vacation, they can make a ride down Pitkin Avenue or a picnic on the Brooklyn Bridge seem just as much fun. These four irresistible stories unfold in fifty-eight picture frames, capturing the essence of time and place and sisterhood.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:58:07 -0400)

Four stories about Mimmy, who is six, and her four-year-old sister Sophie; their momma, poppa, and grandparents, who emigrated from Russia; and their Brooklyn neighborhood during the Depression.
