Claudie Wells wants more than anything to be a person whose imagination can fly, instead of a person whose feet are stuck on the ground. She believes everyone has a talent except for her. She’s growing up in the neighborhood of Harlem in New York City during the 1920s, surrounded by writers and poets, painters and sculptors, actors and dancers, singers and musicians. When an eviction notice threatens her family, friends, and the beloved boardinghouse they share, Claudie has an idea that just might save the day. But first she’ll have to find the confidence to let her imagination soar.

Meet Claudie includes full color illustrations throughout the book plus discussion questions for each chapter. Also included is a "Looking Back" section that gives an 8-page overview of life in the 1920s.
