From the Publisher:
Down in the 86th Street subway station, a plaque bears the name "Jamaica Louise James, age 8". Who is Jamaica and what did she do? Sit back and enjoy because in this peppery story, Jamaica tells you all about it. With pictures as spunky as Jamaica Louise James herself, Amy Hest's inspiring tale reveals how important just one person -- even someone aged eight -- can be.
Eight-year-old Jamaica Louise James is an aspiring artist who finds a way to bring color and life to the subway station where her grandmother works. Color illustrations accompany the text.

"Samton's gouache/acrylic/watercolors have a childlike innocence and energy combined with a sure hand for composition and expression." - Janice M. Del Negro September 1996
