?Once it starts?the longing for a dog?there is no cure for it.? Not checkers or kites or furry boots with zippers; not playing the trumpet or sharing movie popcorn with your friend; nothing can stop the longing for a dog. . . . Nothing?but a dog!

With lyrical text and art that ranges from bright and colorful to subtle and dreamy, this book perfectly captures one little girl?s yearning for a barking, bounding best friend. Readers young and old will recognize themselves in this emotionally satisfying, universal story of childhood longing and canine companionship.

About the Author:

Bobbi Katz is a well-known poet and anthologist, as well as a longtime children's book editor. She lives in Port Ewen, New York.

Jane Manning has illustrated numerous books for children, including the national bestseller The Witch Who Was Afraid of Witches, by Alice Low. She lives in Deep River, Connecticut.

From Booklist:

A smiling dog and a contented girl nuzzle on the book cover, but the title page shows the girl gazing longingly at puppies in a pet-store window. In a spare poetic narrative, she explains why other pets and possessions are no match for a dog and why even her favorite activities cannot “stop the longing for a dog.” In a wistful dream, she imagines how it would be “waking up with a cold, wet nose pressing against your face,” and she awakens to discover her parents have made her wish come true. Cheerful, realistic illustrations convey the girl’s canine preoccupation as dogs appear on her clothing, toys, umbrella, and other personal possessions. As she daydreams, even the clouds resemble dogs. Pair this winsome puppy-love story with Bob Graham’s Let’s Get a Pup! Said Kate (2001) and Jane O’Connor and Jessie Hartland’s The Perfect Puppy for Me! (2003). Preschool-Grade 2. --Linda Perkins
