All Philipok wants is to go to school--like his big brother, Peter! No, his mother says, he must stay home with Grandma. But little Philipok is determined. He slips out of the house, braving wintry winds and a fierce dog to surprise Peter, the other children, and the teacher as well.
In this retelling of Tolstoy's charming children's tale, Ann Beneduce's simple, lyrical prose and Gennady Spirin's finely-detailed illustrations bring to light a classic that will be loved by a whole new generation of children.
