Little Maria doesn’t want to go live with her grandmother. But grandmother is old and needs Maria’s company even though they have to live in a one-room house away from all the familiar surroundings. Soon a kitten arrives and Maria comes to love her new world in this family story set in rural New Mexico at the turn of the century with photographic re-recreations by Jan Young.
Stella Houghton Alico, a direct descendent of the founding Houghtons of Houghton Mifflin Publishing Company, lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her love of children and of history were combined when she rewrote classics and biographies published by Pendulum Press in comic book format to encourage children to read. She worked in the Foster Grandparents program in Santa Fe schools and with the U.S. Forest Service.
Photographer Jan Young spent many years as a news photographer as well as photographing stills, book illustrations, advertising, and general publicity.
