I gave this book to my Dad years ago when he was on his way to have boils lanced. He walked home from the doctor's office and I could hear his laughter two blocks away!!! As a New Yorker familiar with birds on the streets, to this day I can still hear Peter talking about pigeons "with their coo, coo, coo and splat, splat, splat"! And the description of the minister with a finger in his ear, poking his brain to keep awake lives in my mind during every boring sermon!

The kid and the old man are an interesting pair. Reminds me of the movie Second Hand Lions. I read this book in 1968 while recovering from wounds received in Vietnam. A friend loaned me his copy and I laughed and laughed. It's one of the funniest books I have ever read. Just the description of the old man walking up the stairs will make you roll in the floor with laughter. I wish I had a couple more copies. It's terrific. If you're fortunate enough to locate one you won't want to put it down. The mysterious old man's big house is the perfect place for a boy to explore during the summer to keep from being bored but the owner doesn't have the welcome mat out and hasn't for some time. Makes you want to check things out even more, doesn't it? Enjoy yourself. Rick
