Left Jacket: "William wants a doll--to hug, to feed, to tuck in, and kiss goodnight. `Don't be a creep,` says his brother. `Sissy, sissy,` chants the boy next door. His father buys him trains and a basketball--but not the doll that William really wants. Then one day, someone comes along who understands why William should have his doll. Written by beloved author Charlotte Zolotow, and illustrated by the Newbery Award-winning author and Caldecott Honor Award-winning illustrator William Pène du Bois, William's Doll is a groundbreaking classic that will warm the hearts of many generations to come."
