Dave Mitchell is fourteen and growing up in the midst of the variety and excitement of New York City. In this quiet, reflective and humorous story of a boys journey toward adulthood, Emily Neville captures the flavor of one kind of New York boyhood - the sights and sounds of Gramercy Park, Coney Island, the Fulton Fish Market, the Bronx Zoo, the stickball games played in city streets, the fascinating mixture of nationalities and eccentrics that give the huge metropolis so much of its flavor and excitement. But most of all the author tells ar ealistic tale of Daves affection for a stray tomcat, his comradeship with a troubled nineteen-year-old boy, his first shy friendship with a girl, and his growing undersatnding of his father as a human being and not just a parent.
Emil Weisss lively drawings capture the mood and setting of the story to perfection.
