The premise: One morning an orange traffic cone appears in front of the Valencia orange tree on Orange Street. Bunny, Leandra, Ali, and Robert - all neighborhood kids - wonder WHAT the cone means. They fear something awful is going to happen to their beloved tree. And who is the mysterious stranger in the green car?
What keeps readers reading: Finding out the fate of the tree! But, more importantly, through the course of one day and the following morning, readers discover family relationships, fears, friendships, and a forgetful old woman who's lived on Orange Street longer than anyone else. Readers learn about past families and current residents of Orange Street, all guided by an orange tree and an orange traffic cone. This softly woven story by Joanne Rocklin delves into the everyday life of people, but One Day and One Amazing Morning on Orange Street shares how everyday things are anything but ordinary.
