Eleanor Estes’s Ginger Pye,
a 1952 Newbery Medal winner, is a warm, witty mystery set in a
small-town American community. Ginger Pye, the star of the show, is the
very smart dog that ten-year-old Jerry Pye buys for a hard-earned
dollar. The most famous pup in Cranbury (a town between Boston and New
York), Ginger knows many tricks, is as loyal as he is smart, and steals
the hearts of everyone he meets . . . until someone steals him! Will
Jerry and his sister Rachel ever be able to find their beloved terrier?
The author’s own black-and-white sketches leave just enough to the
imagination. Don’t miss the sequel, Pinky Pye, also available in paperback!
I just bought this book from the library bookstore. It looks so cute and I can’t wait to read it with my daughter. It is only $1.99 today on Amazon (Kindle).
