Synopsis

Fred Stays with Me! by Nancy Coffelt

Told from the point of view of a young child whose parents are divorced, Fred Stays with Me follows the child and her dog, Fred, from one parent's house to the other's, giving the child a sense of continuity and stability. With a simple text and kidlike language, the story expresses and addresses a child's concerns, highlights the friendship between child and pet, presents a common ground for the parents, and resolves conflict in a positive way. Tricia Tusa's charming and whimsical artwork adds a light, happy feel to this poignant but not overly sentimental story.
