When Aunt Flossie's Hats (and Crab Cakes Later) was first published in 1991, it met with an overwhelming response from readers and reviewers alike. Here was a wonderful family story," as The Horn Book Magazine said, set matter-of-factly in an African-American environment." Since then, the story of Sarah and Susan's Sunday afternoon with their great-great-aunt Flossieand her many hats and storieshas become a favorite book for sharing and for initiating conversations about family history. For this celebratory 10th anniversary edition, Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard has written a special eight-page afterword, illustrated with family photographs, in which she tells about her own family history and the real Aunt Flossie, a truly remarkable woman.
