Synopsis

The Dog Who Belonged to No One by Amy Hest

This is a lyrical picture book reminiscent of such greats as Arnold Lobel or Bill Steig, by best-selling author Amy Hest in which a lonely, wandering little dog who belongs to no one finds his true best friend and a perfect home with a shy little girl named Lia. This story is written beautifully with an old-fashioned, yet innovative style, as the spreads move back and forth between the dog and little girl's parallel stories until they are united together in the end. Amy Hest's books have sold nearly 1 million copies accumulated.
