Product description

From Booklist

Ages 5-8. Lush oil paintings depicting the Irish countryside highlight this story of a stray dog and the crusty old man who learns to love him. The dog appears out of nowhere, making overtures of friendship, but Peter wants nothing to do with the mutt. More than once he shoos him away, but the animal always returns--to warm Peter's feet, share a bite of food, or keep him company--and the two develop an unspoken alliance. When the dog disappears during a particularly intense rainstorm, Peter sets out to search for his missing friend, finally locating him in an abandoned cellar. Blake relates the tale entirely through Peter's monologue, using a lilting Irish dialect. Text and illustration intertwine to tell a complete story: Peter's words reveal his gruff exterior while the expressive paintings betray his true, soft heart. Some children may need assistance to understand the dialect, but once they understand it, they will enjoy this tale of friendship and old age. Kay Weisman
