She sings higher than the peanut man's whistle and louder than the siren on the fire engine, but no one does anything about itexcept Harry that is. Harry comes up with one clever scheme after another to get her to stop, each one funnier than the last and each one landing him a night in the doghouse. But Harry is ingenious and persistent, and his attempts finally lead to a solution that is a wonderful surprise for both Harry and the lady next door.
