The Grey Lady and the Strawberry Snatcher

By Molly Bang
Published by Four Winds Press, 1980
In a mysterious and creepy book, the grey lady brings strawberries home for her family. Little does she know, the strawberry snatcher is right behind her the whole way trying to get them away from her– until it discovers blackberries! The grey lady makes it home safely and her family enjoys the strawberries.
A fun book for art classes to look at, to see how color is used to tell a story and characterize its characters.
