Illus. in full color. "A sensitive story about a boy who, with the help of a deaf freind, conquers his fear of a neighbor's dog that bit him years earlier. In the process, he saves a kitten and befriends an elderly, recently widowed man. Carpenter's pictures give vivid life to Hesse's gripping story, set in a 1940s neighborhood. Children will beg to tell their own stories after hearing this one."--(starred) School Library Journal.
