Amazon Description

Since it was first published in 1964, Whistle for Willie has delighted millions of young readers with its simple writing and its striking collage artwork depicting the story of Peter, who longs to whistle for his dog. The New York Times wrote: "Mr. Keats's illustrations boldly, colorfully capture the child, his city world, and the shimmering heat of a summer's day."

One Potato Review

A trip around the neighborhood, alone with the responsibility of games to invent - tracing a path with a piece of chalk, hiding in a box, making the world go all spinny - when no one else is around to make up the rules. Okay, the dog’s around, still all you’ve got to do is learn to whistle. One of the great travel books of our time.
