"In the hills, in March, it snowed and then rained four days and nights. Grandma said, 'It'll come a tide.' It did, washing away gardens, porches, pigs. . . . Four families on the hillside cope with the flood. . . . The story is lyrically told with sly humor. . . . Children and adults will love this big-hearted book."--School Library Journal, starred review. Full color.
