Synopsis

By 6 a.m. at Cloverleaf Hospital, young patient Filbert MacFee is ready to go home. He doesn't need any more bed rest. He doesn't want any more shots or x-rays. And he just can't stand any more medicine. How can Filbert fight off the nurses, technicians and doctors when all he has to help him is a box of animal crackers? And how can the little boy convince these grownups to let him go home? Roberta Karim has created a hilarious animal tale that captures the wishes of every child who has even spent time in a hospital. Filbert MacFee's adventures are sure to have young readers and their parents laughing out loud. When John McDonough's richly comic narration is pared with the lively text, the combination is a dose of pure fun.
