Description

The award-winning, classic stories about Peter and his neighborhood friends from the Caledcott Medal-winning author, Ezra Jack Keats. Peter has a new baby sister. First his father paints Peter's old cradle pink, then his crib. Then his parents want to paint Peter's chair! "Let's run away, Willie," he says to his dog. And they do. This is a gentle and reassuring story about sibling rivalry. A more charming or contemporary child than Peter . . . is hard to bring to mind.--School Library Journal

About Ezra Jack Keats

Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983) is the Caldecott Medal winning author of The Snowy Day, which broke ground in 1962 as one of the first picture books for young children to portray a realistic, multi-cultural urban setting. Since its initial publication, The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children's classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats' legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter--the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.
