Horn Book Review

A sense of isolation permeates the opening spreads of this wordless story as a girl gazes out at a rain-drenched city street from an apartment window. She soon spots a little lost dog, and a page-turn reveals the now-raincoat-clad girl running upstairs while clutching the pup. Readers soon discover, thanks to a flyer pinned to a bedroom bulletin board, that the girl has previously lost a different dog, whose name was Prudence. After the new dogs successful acclimation to Prudences old bowl and bed, the pair hits a glitch when the new dog wants to play with Prudences ball and leash. Our protagonist isnt quite ready to share those keepsakes and becomes visibly upseta tension emphasized by Days choice to exclude all background imagery from the spread. A restful nights sleep and playful morning outside (featuring an exuberantly illustrated rolling-down-a-hill scene) assuage both the child and little dogs trepidations; however, the girl is soon confronted with a lost sign featuring the same little dog, and she must make the difficult decision to do the right thing. Days pen-and-ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations are set against stark white backgrounds and, through varying page layouts and purposeful pops of color, convey a clear narrative, express a range of emotions, and meaningfully guide the readers eye. patrick gall January/February 2019 p 81(c) Copyright 2018.
