The Most Important Thing: stories about sons, fathers, and grandfathers by Avi
Juvenile Fiction-Grade School, ages 8+
In seven stories, one of our most treasured writers, Avi, introduces seven boys-boys who have fathers at homeand boys whose fathers have left, boys who spend most of their time with their grandfathers and boys who would rather spend time with anyone but the men in their lives. By turns heartbreaking, hopeful, and funny, these stories reveal boys seeking acceptance, guidance, or just someone to look up to. That search may happen when dealing with a father's ghost, during a camping trip with a mysterious grandfather, while interviewing a potential dad, at a public reckoning, or in other situations that raise the question " What is the most important thing a father can do for his son?"
