Bestseller Ebook Whistle for Willie This now classic storybook has always been a favorite of mine. I remember trying to learn to whistle, too, and I was doing so in order to call my dad's cat in for dinner. The boy in the book, Peter, has a huge imagination and his parents support him in that, such as when he pretends to be his father and his mother tells him she thinks Peter was out with the dog and perhaps he could find him there. I like that the dog is a daschund yet no one makes fun of that. I love that the family is black, and that's irrelevant to the plot; they're just another family.The illustrations are simplistic but they are somehow collages, I think, and they fit the story perfectly.
