It’s a kinder, gentler, altogether more charming world than our own, and its citizens will entertain. So long as somebody’s watching.

Synopsis

A tiny dog, a kindhearted girl, and a nervous juggler converge in a cinematic book in four acts — a unique children’s literature experience.

Lucy is a small dog without a home. She had one once, but she remembers it only in her dreams. Eleanor is a little girl who looks forward to feeding the stray dog that appears faithfully beneath her window each day. Eleanor’s father is a juggler with stage fright. The overlapping stories of three delightful characters, offering a slightly different perspective each time, come together in a truly original, beautifully illustrated book for dog (and underdog) lovers of all ages.

Excellent

A brief denouement in the final act reveals that each main character has given the others just what they needed; a clever structure and a satisfying story.
