When Lily’s sister is born prematurely, the doctor sends the tiny baby and her mother to Coney Island’s famed incubator clinic. Lily and her father also move to Coney Island, where they live with Samuel, the woodcarver who makes the carousel horses. Set in turn-of-the-century Coney Island, this beautiful story skillfully depicts the traditions of Jewish immigrant woodcarvers, who played an important part in the history of the American carousel.
