Bert Dodsons charming illustrations bring the bygone era to life and highlight key points in the story. Due to be published in September 2006, an advance review copy is enclosed for your consideration. A simple, elegant tale set in Brookline, Massachusetts a generation or two ago, Cousin John is about awakening and discovery, animals and humans, as experienced by a lonely, curious boy and his pet pig who become the talk of the town. A true story, Cousin John exemplifies that magic moment in childhood Graham Greene noted, when the door opens and lets the future in.
