Masterful storytelling and gorgeous paintings of the beautiful heroine and her beloved dog, Pipiolo, hallmark the debut of a talented new team. Lupe and Pipiolo cannot imagine what life must be like for the roof dogs-the guard dogs set out on the small, hot concrete roofs of their town in Mexico. Pipiolo, a rascal and a deep thinker, orchestrates their escape with an act of daring and bravura that makes him the savior of the roof dogs.

The rich yet piquant narration will hold young audiences rapt. The vivid paintings, glowing with warm desert colors, bring the heroic Pipiolo to life in broad swaths and tender details. Readers will revel in this inspired tale of "Tierra y Libertad!"

Illustrated by Perky Edgerton.

A four-legged Simon Bolivar in training, Pipiolo inspires the roof dogs to dream of a better life with his "long" and "eloquent" barking ("He spoke of freedom, courage, cooperation, and action—and of all the smells yet to be experienced"), then leads a mass escape to the mountains.
