Publisher Comments:

The classic of child therapy. Dibs will not talk. He will not play. He has locked himself in a very special prison. And he is alone. This is the true story of how he learned to reach out for the sunshine, for life . . . how he came to the breathless discovery of himself that brought him back to the world of other children.

McCaffre, July 1, 2006 (view all comments by McCaffre)
This has to be one of the most enlightening and moving accounts of the world of a small distressed child, and his fortunate friendship with a qualified caring adult. A real wakeup call to detached intellectual parents who try to raise a child without positive emotional input.

This book is also a joy to read, as Dibs' perceptive, pithy comments as he becomes older and freer, hit straight between the eyes. Five Star material.
