Publisher's Summary

In the little town of Blackbird Tree live two orphan girls: Naomi Deane, brimming with curiosity, and her best friend, Lizzie Scatterding, who could talk the ears off a cornfield.

But then, one day, a boy drops out of a tree. Then the Dingle Dangle man appears, asking all kinds of questions. Curious surprises are revealed, and soon Naomi and Lizzie find themselves zooming toward a future neither could ever have imagined. Meanwhile, on a grand estate across the ocean, an old lady whose heart has been deceived concocts a plan....

As two very different worlds are woven together, Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech celebrates the gossamer thread that connects us all, and the great and unexpected gifts of love, friendship, and forgiveness.
