Grade 1-3-- A dreamlike English countryside is the setting for this story. A young girl and her family move to the country, where she and her brother have difficulty making friends. When their dog disappears, the boy and girl search for him and find friends as well as the canine wanderer. This serene, satisfying account of a child's predicament is reminiscent of the work of Carol and Donald Carrick, featuring gentleness in the illustrations and the same qualities of care and concern among family members. Children and adults are drawn with soft, fuzzy edges, in scenes that enhance the quiet, understated text. Best in one-on-one situations or with small groups. --Suzanne Wolfe, formerly at Shady Side Academy Junior School, Pittsburgh

Liz likes the green hills surrounding her new home but is too shy to make friends with the country children. Her tiny dog, Pip, is more adventurous: When he disappears during one of his explorations, the neighbor children offer to join in what becomes a lengthy search, happily concluded when Pip is discovered singing along with the village choir. Meanwhile, Liz has made lots of new friends. The rather long text of this warmhearted story is also appropriate for young readers; Moore's skillfully drawn, full-color illustrations of Liz's cozy fireside and the pleasant British countryside glow with vitality.
