About the Author:

Betsy Byars was born in North Carolina, USA. Her father worked in a cotton mill, and Betsy went to school in a cotton-mill village. Her early aspirations were to work with animals, but then she married an engineering lecturer and moved to Illinois. Housebound with young children, Betsy began writing articles for newspapers and magazines. As the children started to read, so she began to write stories for them. Using her children's experience, and memories from her own childhood, she produced many children's books. She now lives in South Carolina.

Review:

"This book holds one of my favorite characters, city bred Tom, who is doomed to spend the summer on his uncle's farm when his parents decide to take a long bicycle trip. Tom doesn't like animals, and they don't like him. But through quiet afternoons spent exploring the forest and fields, Tom becomes more aware of, and finally more comfortable, with the power and beauty of the natural world, and in the end acts to save a part of that world."--Children's Literature
