Matt De La Pena / Christian Robinson “Last Stop on Market Street”
Discussion and Book Signing
Every Sunday after church, CJ and his grandma ride the bus across
town. But today, CJ wonders why they don’t own a car like his
friend Colby. Why doesn’t he have an iPod like the boys on the
bus? How come they always have to get off in the dirty part of
town? Each question is met with an encouraging answer from
grandma, who helps him see the beauty—and fun—in their routine
and the world around them.
This energetic ride through a bustling city highlights the wonderful perspective only grandparent and grandchild can share, and comes to life through Matt de la Pena’s vibrant text and Christian Robinson’s radiant illustrations.
