Gr 1-3-This version of the Lord's Prayer (not King James) is also about an African-American family in the city, depicted in strong, realistic watercolor-and-acrylic pictures. By the sign on his truck, Ted Davis's occupation is known: "Exterior Repair, Lawn Care, Painting." On this day, Ted drives with his daughter to the lumber store, the deli, and the flower shop, and finally to an elderly woman's home. He and his daughter do all of the work for her that his truck advertises, and he refuses pay. The lines of the prayer are supposed to be illustrated by the events of the story: for instance, as the girl finds a shiny medallion in the yard and holds it thoughtfully, the accompanying lines are, "And lead us not into temptation,/but deliver us from the evil one." The pictures themselves are expressive, but such literal interpretation is moralistic, jarring, and sometimes obscure.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
