Dave Mitchell is fourteen and growing up in the midst of the variety and excitement of New York City. In this quiet, reflective, and humorous story of a boy's journey toward adulthood, Emily Neville captures the flavor of one kind of New York boyhood -- the sights and sounds of Gramercy Park, Coney Island, the Fulton Fish Market, the Bronx Zoo, the stickball games played in city streets, the fascinating mixture of nationalities and eccentrics that give the huge metropolis so much of its flavor and excitement. But most of all the author tells a realistic tale of Dave's affection for a stray tomcat, his comradeship with a troubled nineteen-year-old boy, his first shy friendship with a girl, and his growing understanding of his father as a human being and not just a parent.
Emil Weiss's lively drawings capture the mood and setting of the story to perfection.

Newbery winner for 1964.

The illustrations add nicely to the story. I visited the beach at Coney Island for the first time this summer (walked on the boardwalk & the beach, and visited the aquarium), so that made the story even more enjoyable.

In the process of looking for a building with awnings (in this case on the windows), I found the cat, which I hadn't even noticed before! :)

Released on the KCC campus around noon on Saturday 10/6 and journaled before I got home to officially release it - thank you! :D

Found this book strategically balanced between two ceramic mosaics on the wall of the Kapi'olani Community College Art Building, what a great surprise, stoked to participate!
