As he gets into bed on his first day of school, Nick tells his father, "There's a boy in my class named David. He has black hair, like you. He wears glasses too. He's not you, is he?"

Nick's father replies, "Oh, yes, that's me," and so begins a playful battle as Nick attempts to trick his mother and father into revealing the mystery of Big and Little David.

S.E. Hinton, well-known for her portrayals of young adults, now turns her attention to a very curious and imaginative young boy. Children and their parents alike will enjoy sharing the warmth and humor of this entertaining family story.
