LUCY by Randy Cecil tells three overlapping stories that come together for a heart-warming finale.
Told in four acts through through different perspectives, this sweet story explores the lives of a lonely dog, a young girl, and an aspiring juggler.
The clever storytelling approach, sparse text, and grayscale illustrations all come together for an unusual reading experience.
Librarians will find this highly-illustrated book popular with dog lovers. Both beginning readers and older children will enjoy the repetition and compelling conclusion.
