When it comes to friendship, who cares about skin color? This classic middle grade novel from Judy Blume carries an important message--with a fresh new look. Iggie's House just wasn't the same. Iggie was gone, moved to Tokyo. And there was Winnie, cracking her gum on Grove Street, where she'd always lived, with no more best friend and two weeks left of summer. Then the Garber family moved into Iggie's house--two boys, Glenn and Herbie, and Tina, their little sister. The Garbers were black and Grove Street was white and always had been. Winnie, a welcoming committee of one, set out to make a good impression and be a good neighbor. That's why the trouble started. Because Glenn and Herbie and Tina didn't want a "good neighbor." They wanted a friend.
