With the same whimsy and buoyancy that established her as a master of magical stories for children, Elisa Kleven tells, in her unique dreamlike style, the story of a shy dog named Joey. Joey is afraid to reach out and make friends, until a beautiful dream angel draws him out by showing that everyone has secret talents to share. Accompanied by shimmering, glorious artwork, it's a joyous, heartwarming story, told in a way that only Elisa Kleven can.
