Gettin' Through Thursday

by Melrose Cooper, illustrated by Nneka Bennett
£6.99   paperback  Lee & Low Books (2001)

Gettin André dreads Thursdays. Thursday is the day before Mama gets paid at work each week — it's the day when money is tight and spirits are low for André and his older brother and sister.
As report card day approaches, André anticipates making the honor roll, and Mama said she'd throw a royal party for just such an event. But André can't believe his eyes when he looks at the calendar and sees that report card day falls on the worst possible day of the week — a Thursday.
André's predicament — and the loving solution that his family offers — will strike a chord with readers of all backgrounds. Melrose Cooper and Nneka Bennett present a warm and touching portrait of a child who experiences a celebration he'll never forget.
