A little girl rides her tricycle to the corner drugstore to buy some gum, But on her way home, she encounters a traffic light at the intersection which won't turn green. When she asks the light why he won't turn green, he replies, "Because I'm feeling mean!" As a result, it doesn't take long for traffic to start piling up, angering countless motorists. First, the school bus driver demands the light to turn green. But the stubborn light refuses. Then angry motorists get out of their cars and confront the stubborn light, shaking their fists at him and demanding that he turn green. No deal. Then the police arrive and order the light to turn green, but to no avail. Perplexed, the police call in a light-fixing team, then an engineer, then a mechanic, but none of them can make that light turn green! More police arrive and demand that the light turn green without further delay. But still, no deal. Finally, the little girl on the trike remembers what her mother had just taught her that very morning, and suddenly she knows just what to do to make that light turn green! Told in verse with color illustations throughout by 6-year-old Mattea Grandaw and her 8-year-old sister Sajen Grandaw, this story will delight readers and listeners ages 3 and up. Includes a heartfelf foreword by Brandi Grandaw, mother of Mattea and Sajen.
