PreS-Gr 2-A sweet story about a girl and her Border collie. When Annie brings Bess home, she wants to know what the puppy is trying to say. With Mom's gentle help, the child learns when Bess wants to be close to her, to be petted, and to play. The dog learns to come when called. The two friends love roaming the English countryside, exploring special places for hours. When the day comes that Annie must go to school, Bess misses her terribly. She halfheartedly plays with her toys and finally lies quietly at Mom's feet until she hears the school bus approach. Bess tears across the yard leaping and jumping to greet Annie, and the pair once again roam outdoors. The realistic, soft pastel and colored-pencil art reflects the joys of owning and loving a puppy. The story would work well in a storytime paired with Bob Graham's "Let's Get a Pup!" Said Katie (Candlewick, 2001) or when introducing children to pet ownership. This heartwarming book will be right at home in most picture-book collections.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"Kim Lewis draws the English countryside and farm animals as well as any children's illustrator, with delicate and detailed realism."The Sunday Times"
