Part of a series of philosophical readers, this story for elementary school children presents two characters, Kio and Gus, who are sensitive to ideas, language, and the world around them. The book consists largely of dialogue as each character narrates his/her story. In the course of a summer, Kio visits his grandfather's farm and befriends Gus, who is blind. Gus helps Kio become aware of the world as the blind experience it and of the creative activities of those who are blind. Concepts presented include contrasts between fantasy and reality, fear and courage, saying and doing, and truth and beauty. (KC)
