About this item
An ode to mastering a new skill, WHISTLE FOR WILLIE tells the story of Peter, a young boy who wants to learn how to whistle so he can summon his dog, Willie. However, try as he might, Peter just can't whistle, and so he does some other things, like spinning himself around in circles, drawing with chalk on the sidewalk, and going home to play with his mother. Later, when Peter goes back outside, he spots Willie--will Peter finally be able to whistle for his pup? Set during the heat of a summer's day, this companion to THE SNOWY DAY is illustrated with torn paper collages and watercolor paintings.
In the heat of a city summer, young Peter, an African American child, wishes to be able to whistle for his dog
