Summary

Newbery Medal Winner, 1952

Ten-year-old Jerry Pye wants a dog more than anything. And not just any dog. He has a puppy all picked out. But someone else wants him, too. So Jerry and his sister must hurry to earn enough money to buy him. When they get Ginger home, strange things start to happen. A sneaky stranger in a yellow hat starts following them everywhere. When their precious Ginger disappears on Thanksgiving Day, they start looking for the man in the yellow hat. If they find him, they'll probably find their pup. Finally, after months of fruitless searching, their determination is rewarded by a stroke of good luck and a gust of wind.  

Fresh, touching, and unforgettable, this book takes listeners back to a time and place alive with innocence and family tradition. Kate Forbes' lively narration lets listeners see the world through the fresh eyes of a close-knit family enjoying each other through both good times and bad.

Heartwarming nostalgia

I wish every student could listen to this book today. It shows the character that children used to be surrounded by and nurtured with. I loved every minute of it!
