as young as six and as old as twelve years. Munro Leaf's expressive pen and ink drawings help to tell the
tale of young Willis who has to choose between living in the highlands and herd goats or in the lowlands and
herd cows. He is fond of both sets of relatives. Fortunately, an encounter with a man and his set of very large

reason or another, have not learned to read in the early grades and are trying to catch up. Highly recommended.
