Mirandy overlooks her obvious partner for her first cakewalk as she tries to find Brother Wind. Set in the rural South of the early 20th century, the exuberant story is full of humor and joy. The full-color illustrations offer an abundance of complementary details. The African-American origins of the cakewalk are explained in the author's brief autobiographical note. (Ages 4-8)
