This is the story of a little boy named Dibs.  He would not talk.  He would not play.  Judged mentally defective, he was oblivious both to other children and to his teacher; in reality he was a brilliant, lonely child trapped in a prison of fear and rage, a prison from which only he could release himself.  And, through psychotherapy and love, he did.

Virginia Mae Axline (1911 – 1988) was a psychologist and one of the pioneers in the use of play therapy.  She is also the author of Play Therapy.
