A story about an old man, a dog, a boy, fishing and friendship - what could be simpler? Norma King has brought an emotional and fresh approach to children's writing with real characters, real circumstances, and everyday problems. Suitable for upper primary level students, but enjoyed equally by adults. 'Hi! Mister Sam' will be exhibited to thousands of public and educational librarians at the American Library Association Midwinter Book Fair in Denver, Colorado, from 23-26 January 2009.
