Synopsis

Ten dogs in the window, for the whole wide world to see -- dogs of all shapes and sizes, all looking for a home. One by one an equally diverse parade of customers passes the shop window ... and stops ... and chooses the dog that is somehow a perfect match for them. The chant-aloud, rhyming text makes counting down great fun, and children will love guessing just which dog each new customer will buy.

Claire Masurel is the author of many books for children, including TWO HOMES, illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton. She lives in Paris. David Walker has illustrated several children's books. This is his first with Candlewick Press. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of aviator Charles Lindbergh and poet Anne Morrow Lindbergh, first learned about Bessie Coleman in 1986, the 60th anniversary of her father's famous flight. "Bessie was an incredibly brave person who was hardly noticed, while my parents got so much publicity it was difficult for them to live their normal lives. I saw a crazy imbalance and wanted to try to set things right." Reeve Lindbergh lives in Vermont. Pamela Paparone observes that NOBODY OWNS THE SKY is "about making dreams come true. My own dream has always been to be a children's book illustrator. In fact, I was ten years old when I created my first children's book. I dedicated it to Johnny Cash." Pamela Paparone lives in Pennsylvania.

Until the final dog, Masurel's (No, No, Titus!) text repeats the same rhyme, as each owner and dog pair up: ""10 dogs in the window for the whole wide world to see.
