Horn Book Review

In a rhythmic text complemented by luminous, impressionistic watercolors, a man tells his great-grandson about his childhood on the prairie and about the dog he had. The interchange throughout between the child and adult sets a comfortable tone for the story in this genuine slice-of-life narrative. From HORN BOOK 1991, (c) Copyright 2010.
