The Old Man
|Author:||Sarah V; Claude K. Dubois (Illustrator)|
Day breaks over the town. Get up, everybody! It's time to go to school. For the old man too, it's time to wake up. The night was icy and he's hungry. His name? He doesn't know . . .
This is the story of a person with no job, no family, no home--a nobody, who can't even remember what he was once named. But his day changes when he is noticed by a child.
Drawn in soft, watercolor pencil, this is an important story for our times. This gentle, compelling book will appeal to a child's sense of justice and to every reader's compassion.
