Written with warmth and sensitivity, this moving story is based on the author's own experiences of growing up with her beloved uncle Punky, who had Down's Syndrome. Wood has created a realistic portrait of the problems that confront a child growing up in a family with a disabled member . . . It's a hard book to put down.--School Library Journal, starred review.
