KIRKUS REVIEW

 The long title of this first book from O'Shaughnessy--an author with ``a background in education for the developmentally disabled''--says it all: although Dad reminds the young narrator of his many real successes (friends, jobs well done), and though he's learned to keep his hurt a secret, it's still there. A brief but effective vignette, nicely visualized in Garner's simple, lyrically sketched illustrations. (Picture book. 4-8)
