Anna loves to sit and watch her father bind and repair books, hoping to learn this craft herself.  Many people donít understand the care that her father puts into the art of bookbinding.  Even her fatherís most important customer makes unseemingly hard demands of him, asking that an order of books be rebound in three short days.  Annaís father works long hours to accomplish his task, but when Annaís mother goes into labor the night before the order is due, all seems lost.  Can Anna help her father and their family business? ( Lynne Holcomb, South Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
