Socrates' parents have been snatched up by the dogcatcher, leaving him an orphan alone on the streets. Abandoned, hungry and shunned by the other street dogs, Socrates wonders if he'll ever have a home of his very own--and if he'll ever have a friend. Heartwarming and uplifting, this simple text is magnificently complemented by bold, textured oil paintings. Full color throughout.
