Andy, That's My Name

Illustrated by Tomie dePaola
LIST PRICE $7.99

A little kid who wants to play with the big kids uses the alphabet to get his way in this classic story from Strega Nona author and illustrator Tomie dePaola.

Andy may be the littlest kid on the block, but he’s very important. Andy has a wagon full of letters that spell his name, and he takes it with him wherever he goes.

When the big kids decide that using Andy’s letters would be a lot of fun, Andy is left out of the game. But what can the big kids do if Andy takes his name and heads for home?

Originally published in 1973, this classic picture book from the legendary Tomie dePaola now features refreshed artwork and a new cover.
