The milkman was tired of talking about the weather. Every day he followed the same route and talked to the same ladies about the same thing—the weather.

But one day he loaded up his van, Amelia, and called his dog, Sylvia, and drove out into the peace and quiet of the countryside. He flipped a coin and said, "eeny-meeny-miny-mo" and drove wherever he pleased. Soon he came to a very special place beside a very special lake, and had a very special holiday.

Written by Roger Duvoisin and illustrated with his inimitable, bold and striking pictures, THE MISSING MILKMAN is dedicated, in the words of the author, "to all milkmen—those devoted people who make good breakfasts possible in all kind of weather—ice, snow, storm, heat, or rain.

"Have a good cup of milk and coffee."
