Malusi, a black South African child, accompanies his grandmother on a shopping trip downtown and finds that, while others always complain about him lagging behind, he moves at just the right speed for his slow-walking grandma. Full-color watercolor paintings are strong in characterization and patterning, while the understated writing style depicts a loving relationship between a child and grandparent entirely through actions set in the context of every-day life experience. (Ages 3-7)
