Front Cover
Boyds Mills Press, 2005 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
It's the fourth of July, and Joe and his parents have come to watch the big parade. They join the crowd that lines the street. People are talking and laughing and joking. But "where is Uncle Louie?" Joe wonders, as the high school band marches by, with twirlers out front flinging their batons high in the air. A mariachi band plays the national anthem. There are clowns, too, and a parade of horses. But there is no sign of Uncle Louie. Now Joe worries that Uncle Louie will miss the big parade. Then Joe sees a flash of chrome. Here come the lowriders! Kathy Whitehead's joyous story captures the thrill of watching an Independence Day parade in the American Southwest. Pablo Torrecilla's spirited illustrations capture the parade's big event: the arrival of the lowriders. But where in the world is Uncle Louie?
