A little boy exchanges Morse code messages with the cricket that lives in his house and together they trap the rat that has been plaguing the boy's father and the cricket's friends.
Simms Sylvanus is nine years old and enormously wise. He knows more about active volcanoes than his father knows about business, and more about electromagnetic fields than anyone in his class. His ideas to improve things are amazing Yet nobody -- not even his parents -- will listen to him.
Cricket is living a lonely life beneath the floorboards in Simms' room. His bride-to-be has left him after a fight, and he doesn't know how to help the other creatures who live underground and fear for their lives.
Everything changes one winter's day when Simms and Cricket discover they can communicate with each other. Through Morse Code, the two tell of their troubles, listen to each other's ideas, and together learn that it's sometimes difficult to do the right thing.
Reissued with charming new illustrations, this beloved classic is sure to delight a new generation of readers.
