When you wander
down a leafy path
I can smell
your invisible
trail . . .

About the Author:

Margarita Engle is the author of several award-winning novels in verse, including The Surrender Tree, a Newbery Honor Book. Her picture book Summer Birds was a Kirkus Best Book for Children. She lives in northern California, where she enjoys helping her husband train his two wilderness search and rescue dogs, Chance and Maggi.

Mary Morgan has illustrated more than forty children's books and written several too, including Dragon Pizzeria. Mary and her husband divide their time between Semur en Auxois, a small village in France, their sailboat in the Mediterranean Sea, and visiting their family.

From Booklist:

Engle and Morgan pair up to describe the job of a search-and-rescue dog in very simple terms for very young children. A small child has wandered off, and the text and drawings show how the beautiful golden-colored graduate of “sniffing school” sets about finding the little rambler. Told from the dog’s point of view, the book’s panels and bubbles display what the dog smells as it practices its skills and puts them to use. Helpful advice, told in a nonfrightening manner, stresses the importance of staying in one place as the dog says, “Hug a tree. Think of me.” The warm, comforting pictures, created in watercolor, gouache, and colored pencils, reflect the soft nature of the text. Happy hugs go all around as the family is reunited, and dog and trainer break into big smiles. A final page gives helpful “Dog Nose Facts” and offers advice for parents and teachers in educating young kids about these canine heroes and what to do if lost. Preschool-Grade 2. --Lolly Gepson
