A little kid who wants to play the big kids uses the alphabet and spelling to get his way in this classic story from Strega Nona author and illustrator Tomie dePaola, now featuring a new cover and refreshed artwork.

Andy may be the littlest kid on the block, but he’s very important. Andy has a wagon full of letters that spell his name, and he takes it with him wherever he goes. When the big kids decide that using Andy’s letters would be a lot of fun, Andy is left out of the game. But what can the big kids do if Andy takes his name and heads for home?

Originally published in 1973, this classic picture book from the legendary Tomie dePaola now features refreshed artwork and a new cover.

In this charming 1973 book, the big kids dismiss Andy as too little to play with, but they're happy to make words out of his name. Ages 3-7. (Aug.)
