Net to Catch Time by Sara Harrell Banks, Sara Harrell Banks

Cuffy wants to buy a boat someday and become a fisherman like his father. In order to earn money, he'll have to do a good business selling his grandma's deviled crabs. From the Gullah culture of Georgia's beautiful Sea Islands comes A Net to Catch Time, a warm family story that recounts a day in the life of a spirited little boy. Follow Cuffy from FIRST FOWL CROW (5:30 in the morning) when he catches the crabs, to SUN LAY OVER (2:30 in the afternoon) as Cuffy watches his grandmother prepare them, to CANDLE LIGHT TIME (twilight) when the island is quiet and the stars come out. Each dazzling spread shows a new time of day, and each time of day has its own lyrical Gullah name. Scott Cook's pastels create even more warmth and flavor in lively island hues. A glossary of Gullah expressions is included.
