Whistle for Willie by Ezra Jack Keats - pbk
When I was little, I read a gazillion Ezra Jack Keats books and they were all wonderful. I feel very lucky that so many of his books are still in print for children today. :D
Since it was first published in 1964, Whistle for Willie has delighted millions of young readers with its nearly wordless text and its striking collage artwork depicting the story of Peter, who longs to whistle for his dog. The New York Times wrote: “Mr. Keats’ illustrations boldly, colorfully capture the child, his city world, and the shimmering heat of a summer’s day.”
Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983) was the beloved author and/or illustrator of more than eighty-five books for children.
