Edwina’s great grandaunt was an outspoken social activist who, forty years
ago, wrote numerous letters to the town's public officials requesting improvements
to community parks and other public locations. After finding these
letters in her aunt's attic, young Edwina is inspired to copy her aunt's
activism as well as her signature. She and her friend Roger team up to
write and mail letters to the current public officials asking for community
improvements. Honesty and friendship issues also help define the plot of
this charming tale. (Sunshine
