Synopsis

Praise for the Dahlov Ipcar Collection:

"I'm glad to see publishers like this, restoring older books with such passion and attention—taking gentle care, that is, of our rich picture book heritage."—Kirkus Reviews

In this unheralded civil rights allegory composed in the heat of the early 60s, two little dogs frolic and dream of adventures beyond their wildest imaginations, from jungles of the Congo with towering ebony elephants to the whitewashed, frigid arctic where the icy white polar bears roam. Dahlov Ipcar once again pairs her timeless illustrations with fresh original verse that celebrates the unity, wonder, and beauty of the living, breathing natural world around us.

Dahlov Ipcar is an American author, artist, and illustrator, whose career has spanned five decades. She has written and illustrated over thirty children's books, won the NEIBA President's Award and the Kerlan Award for Children's Literature. A true master of color and organic form, Ipcar's unique and timeless stories instantly captured the hearts of children world over. Some fifty years later, her books are still in print and continue to be cherished for the beauty of their artwork and quality of their narratives. Flying Eye Books is delighted to introduce a new generation of adoring young readers to Ipcar's classic stories with the inimitable and stunning Dahlov Ipcar Collection.

Dahlov still paints on her farm in Maine where she penned many of her greatest works and has lived since 1937.
