Description

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!
