More than anything, William wants a doll. "Don't be a creep," says his brother. "Sissy, sissy," chants the boy next door. Then one day someone really understands William's wish, and makes it easy for others to understand, too.
Du Bois published his first book when he was seventeen. Since then he has written and illustrated many beloved children's books. He was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1948.
