An old toymaker never wanted to learn to read until his wife went away on a visit and he had to do the grocery shopping by himself. First published in 1968, this sweet story is back for a new generation to read, along with Seymour Fleishman's original, irresistible illustrations.

My grandmother read this to us so many times to this day I can recite it word for word, I would love my children to have a copy.
I remember my mother reading this book to our class. (She was my second grade teacher.) I would LOVE to have a copy of it for my own classroom library. I am a Special Education teacher (K-3). This story teaches children the importance of reading. IT IS AWESOME!!!
