Product description


Winner of the Newbery Medal

"The book's charm lies in its telling, in its humor, in its true awareness of the strength of feeling and imagination, of pain and ecstasy, that is part of childhood."
--Chicago Sunday Tribune

"Here is the book for which we have been waiting. . . . A story written with the same sympathy, humor, and understanding that have made the Moffats so dearly loved everywhere. An outstanding book."
--The Horn Book

"Not many writers can give us the mind and heart of a child as Eleanor Estes can. . . . It is a book to be read and reread."
--Saturday Review of Literature
