hey, boy

Once your dog, always your dog.  A lovely and affecting story of a boy and his dog and their moments of elation and sadness that will resonate deeply with those of us who have grown up with pets.  The illustrations and text move together in a beautiful union — simple, graceful, honest and heartwarming.  This photograph doesn’t do justice to the handsome texture of the cover, so we encourage you to seek this one out for yourselves, hold it in your hands, find a quiet spot and spend some time with it.

Hey, Boy was written by Benjamin Strouse, illustrated by Jennifer Phelan and published by Margaret K. McElderry Books.
