9780618117581: Little Dog and Duncan (Claudia Lewis Poetry Award)

The endearing characters from Little Dog Poems are back—and this time the little girl and her little dog have a very large overnight visitor. Duncan is so big that he plays fetch with a log instead of a stick, his head alone fills Little Dog’s bed, and he takes up way more than his share of the backseat. But even though he and Little Dog are very different, they have lots in common, too—both love cookies and scratches and mud and mischief. Thirty short, playful poems, narrated by the little girl and illustrated with delicate watercolors, affectionately observe the contrasting canines and are an appealing introduction to poetry for very young readers.

From School Library Journal:

reSchool-Grade 3--The star of Little Dog Poems (Clarion, 1999) discovers the give and take of friendship when an enormous Irish wolfhound comes to spend the night. A series of simply worded, evocatively illustrated poems tell an inviting tale of two canines, one gigantic and one petite, as they enthusiastically greet one another, carefully work out territorial issues, roughhouse, and vie for the attention of Little Dog's young owner. In the end, Little Dog is sad to see Duncan go home, and finds reassurance in the arms of the little girl. George has a real knack for choosing ordinary moments and describing them in accessible yet lyrical language, transforming the mundane into the magical. The poems have been pared down and polished to perfection; although written in free verse, they have the elegance and quiet eloquence of haiku. Otani's watercolor paintings are filled with personality and charm. The use of white space or very understated backgrounds keeps the focus on the interaction between the characters, whose expressions and body language echo the emotional nuances of each selection. Glowing with warmth and gentle humor, this book makes a great choice for reading aloud, or for quiet sharing while children are snuggled up with their favorite pet or stuffed pooch.
