The Candystore ManBook - 1998
With a bip-bop-shadip, the jazzy proprietor of a corner candy store takes a lonely young boy under his wing & teaches him, by example, what it means to be part of a community. Jonathan London's finger-popping rhyme & Kevin O'Malley's jiving illustrations tell the hip-hop, heartwarming tale of an everyday hero whose heart -- & door -- are always open.
