About the Author:

Laura Godwin, also known as Nola Buck, is the author of many popular picture books for children. Born and raised in Alberta, Canada, she now lives in New York City.

From Publishers Weekly:

Camouflaged by snow, Little White Dog is hard to detect: only pointy extremities sticking out from a white field, plus a coal-black eye and nose, indicate his presence. The flat, highly stylized forms of Yaccarino's (Good Night, Mr. Night) gouache paintings conceal even more than the color does: Little Blue Bird's wings take up almost the whole sky; Little Green Bug looks like a bumpy, raised mole's tunnel in the grass (none of these creatures looks particularly "little"). Unfortunately, Godwin leaves some narrative holes. After a series of animals has been shown in this veiled way, the reader is told to "Turn on the light!" Yaccarino pictures an anonymous hand turning on a flashlight to reveal Little Black Cat (previously "hidden" against the black sky), "who went to find.../ Little Yellow Chick,/ who went to find.../ Little Brown Horse," etc., all the way back to Little White Dog. The chain of hide-and-seek involves sudden changes from night to day, from snow to green grass, and other leaps of logic. Perhaps the very young will enjoy the visual riddles here; the textual framework, however, may be too loosely constructed for some readers. Ages 2-5.
