    In Whistle for Willie, Peter is a little older than he is in The Snowy Day. He wanders his neighborhood on a summer day, spinning around, playing, drawing a chalk trail on the sidewalk. He decides to learn to whistle so he can call his dog, as he sees an older boy do. Peter tries and tries, but no sound comes out. He puts on his father’s fedora in order to feel more grown-up as he keeps trying to whistle—a wonderful touch to show us that Peter is acquiring skill and status (whistling to master his pet), though in a sweetly childlike way. No wonder some readers consider Whistle for Willie the perfect Keats tale.
