Most noticeable is a large wart with hairs growing out as long and as red as a thistle at the tip of his nose. The neatness of the tale goes far beyond the comic inevitability of its plot.

They have comforted and encouraged countless thousands of readers." One friend paid this tribute to J. Miller: "We all loved him.

His gentleness made him great. His winsomeness had no weakness in it. Somehow everybody felt drawn to him. A book from the Miller Family Series.
