Horn Book Review

Primitive, childlike paintings employing broad expanses of color illustrate the imaginative interpretation of Dog Heaven, where dogs run as far as they like, play with angel children, sleep on clouds, eat cat- or squirrel-shaped biscuits, and return to earth for visits. The story is a comforting one for children or adults dealing with the loss of a pet. From HORN BOOK 1995, (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
