About the Author:

Yoshitomo Nara is one of the most popular and influential contemporary artists in Japan, whose work--often featuring little girls and puppies--has attracted a worldwide following. This is his first book for children. He lives in Tochigi, Japan.

From Booklist:

Japanese pop artist Nara, whose works often feature little girls and dogs, makes his picture-book debut in a story dedicated to physically challenged children everywhere. An enormous dog (so big that when he stands he straddles the Pacific Ocean) is lonely until a little girl notices him. Climbing up to stand on the bridge of his nose, she sings to him. The author concludes that no matter how alone you are, there is always someone, somewhere, waiting to meet you. The artwork features simple, pastel-hued figures drawn with bold strokes. Large eyes are a focal point for many of the figures, and unlike some of Nara’s other work, the spreads here appear innocent and tranquil. Young listeners may be confused because the text ends somewhat abruptly, followed by several additional illustrative spreads; but since the artwork is likely to provoke discussion, preschoolers may not even notice the lack of words. This is a quiet tale with limited appeal, but the notion of friendship as an antidote to loneliness will bring comfort to listeners who find the book. --Kay Weisman
