Illustrated by the famous graphic artist André François, Little Boy Brown is the greatest book about childhood loneliness of all time. It is also a classic that is ripe for rediscovery because of the lost New York City that it invokes and its contemporary feel. Little boy Brown loves elevators, tunnels, and subways. His friends are doormen and waiters. This is his own account of the wonderful day that he spends with Hilda, his family's maid, and her family in the country. The character of little boy Brown is completely real and moving, and his story lingers long after the last word has been read.
