|Summary:||The author and illustrator discusses his childhood in early twentieth-century New York City, describing his family, home, neighbors, and what he could buy with a nickel.|
This is the story of when I was a boy, almost 100 years ago, when fire engines were pulled by horses, boys did not play with girls, kids went to libraries for books, there was no TV, you could see a movie for a nickel and everybody wore a hat. William Steig illustrates this pictorial memoir with his own unique drawings.
