Neither Hester nor Minnie the doll has any idea what adventures are in store for them, until the love of "really-for-real folks" .

Late at night she learns the rules and lessons of the make-believe world from such characters as Scruffy the rhyming rabbit, Waddle Waddle the wooden duck, and Prima Donna, the snooty but lovely "looking" (not "playing") doll.

Hester Merriweather's grandmother gives her a handmade rag doll that proves to be very special indeed, in the first book of a series which includes historical background on Chicago's African-American community during the 1930s. 50,000 first printing.
It is Bronzeville, 1933 & Hester's family - her Mama, Willimena Louise & her sister, Anna Julia gather at Chicago's 12th Street Station to welcome Papa home. He works for the Illinois Central Railroad as a Pullman porter & sometimes he is away for days at a time. This time he's coming back with a gift from Grandmama Alfie.
That night when Papa & Mama put the girls to bed, he tells them the stories of the special cloths that went into making Grandmama's little brown rag doll.
Finally the family is asleep & that's when the dolls & toys come alive, as everyone knows! Minnie suddenly hears squabbling voices & finds her own voice.
At the book's end there are Chocolate-Covered Memories: A Snapshot of Chicago's African-American History, complete with handwritten text & sepia-tinted photographs of that era.
Minnie Saves the Day is a fully-imagined, elegantly & eloquently presented treasure to be savored & re-read to each wondering generation.
My mother and her sisters were born in Bronzeville (Chicago, IL) in the early 1920s. My maternal Grandfather came to Chicago (first generation Great Migration) in 1918 from Prentiss, Mississippi and my maternal Grandmother came to Chicago (first generation through Ellis Island) in 1919 from Coleyville, Jamaica. I developed this children's series to reflect my mother's and our family's history, that part of Chicago's
history which has been sparsely documented...and often, misunderstood. As a Biracial child growing up in the 50s and 60s, there were many times I found it difficult to identify with any one group, and more times than not, seemed to blend into them all. Perhaps that is why I decided to bridge this gap of cultural and racial misnomers with books about African-Americans. Through this series, The Adventures of Minnie, I hope everyone will come to relive the magic and frolick with its protagonist, a lively and spirited character who, though she is a rag doll, imbues the essence and charm of "childhood". Surrounded by toys of various forms and personalities---the stories and characters are limitless because we venture into a world that allows us to experience the wonders of our
imagination...and travel to a special place...through the many adventures Minnie finds herself a part of.
Our family loves this book. We read it at least once a year.
It is a favorite.
We are sorry they never came out with the other
books listed in this series.
This is a book that any child, or child at heart
person would really enjoy.
I picked this book up because it reminded me of the Raggedy Ann and Andy books. (I enjoy American children's fantasy literature from the first half of the 20th century.) Ms. Rosales' book is absolutely charming. It is filled with magic, the innocence of childhood and a fascinating bit of history. A difficult combination but very well done. When will Minnie's next adventure be available?
