From the Publisher
The Pye family of Cranbury, Connecticut adopts a dog, which they name Ginger. But they notice that ever since Ginger came to live with them, a mysterious stranger wearing a mustard-yellow hat has been hanging around their house. When Ginger disappears one day, the Pyes wonder if the mysterious stranger in the hat is involved. Winner of the 1952 Newbery Medal.
Would Gracie-the-Cat be jealous if the Pyes got another pet--a dog? That was what Jerry Pye wanted to know and what he was dreaming about as he sat with Rachel, his sister, on their little upstairs veranda.
