Description
Nine-year-old Simms Silvanus is enormously wise, yet no one—not even his parents—will listen to him. Cricket, enduring a lonely winter beneath the floorboards in Simms's room, listens to the strange language of the Silvanuses. And then, one night, the boy begins to talk in a language that is easier for the cricket to understand—a language of chirps, much like his own. As Simms learns Morse code on the telegraph key he built, Cricket learns it too, and begins to chirp back. Lewis Carroll Shelf Award winner Felice Holman's 1967 book for readers 7 to 11 is paired with charming pointillist cartoons in ink.
