The Graves Family



Summary of The Graves Family


The Graves Family by Patricia Polacco is a story about a family that moved to an old house on Park Street in Union City. The family painted their house bloodred and this caused the neighbors to avoid them. Sara, Seth and Ronnie Graves became friends. Sara’s mom invited Mrs. Graves to the Garden Tea and it went terribly wrong! The kids wanted to help Mrs. Graves feel accepted so they passed out a hair formula to all the bald men in town. The men started to act like cats during the contest. An angry crowd, including the judge Christopher Joel, marched to the Graves’ house. Mrs. Graves won the home decor contest and the family finally fit in.
