"Here is a book that sings with hope - especially for the handicapped. It is the true story of Hollis Ofstie's struggle - and victory - not only over a twisted body but over prejudice and misunderstanding as well.
Victim of spastic paralysis (cerebral palsy), Hollis faces up to the challenge of accepting the affliction and living beyond it.
The reader will enjoy the homely, everyday incidents in the life of this remarkable boy. Despite his physical limitations, he lived life to the fullest, spreading cheer, comfort, and good works along the way."
