ANNA MYERS. Tumbleweed Baby. Abrams Books for Young Readers. Hardcover, no page numbers, $16.95, abramsyoungreaders.com.

An unusual and lively tale about a quirky family of seven, the Upagainstits, from Nowhere, Texas. And they certainly are “upagainstit,” with their ramshackle house set amid “nothing but sand and—oh yes—tumbleweeds.” But this doesn’t prevent them from taking in a strange, wild-haired baby found in a patch of tumbleweed. Funny dialogue and action ensue as each family member reacts to the Tumbleweed Baby. This well-written book ends with a surprising revelation.
