Read in January, 1959

Ain't it strange that so many children's classics make children cry? The story of young Jody Baxter and his fawn pal Flag depicts a harsh life in the Florida swamp. It is full of strange (to most children) life experiences, and retains its ability to make me tear up just thinking about it. As long as children cherish stories that ring with a larger, deeper, inner truth, this book prevail.
