u003cbu003eFrom the creator of the u003ciu003eNew York Timesu003c/iu003e best-illustrated children's book award winner u003ciu003eThe Only Childu003c/iu003e, comes a gorgeous and moving wordless picture book that's perfect for dog lovers.u003c/bu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e In this heartwarming, wordless picture book that's perfect for dog lovers, a woman visits a park and discovers a pup hiding under a bench--scruffy, scared, and alone. With gentle coaxing, the woman tries to befriend the animal, but the dog is too scared to let her near. Day after day, the woman tries--and day after day, the dog runs away. With perseverance and patience--and help from an enticing tennis ball--a tentative friendship begins. But it's not until a raging storm forces the two together that a joyous and satisfying friendship takes hold. Guojing poignantly explores how trust doesn't always come easily, but how, over time, and with kindness and determination, forever love can grow.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e u003cbu003ePraise foru003c/bu003e u003cbu003eu003ciu003eThe Only Childu003c/iu003eu003c/bu003eu003cbu003e-u003c/bu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e u003cbu003eAu003c/bu003e u003cbu003eu003ciu003eNew York Timesu003c/iu003eu003c/bu003e u003cbu003eBest Illustrated Booku003c/bu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e "Rare is the book containing great emotional depth that truly resonates across a span of ages- this is one such." --u003ciu003eKirkus Reviewsu003c/iu003e, Starredu003cbru003e u003cbru003e "Fine draftsmanship, deft pacing, and striking imaginative power distinguish this debut." --u003ciu003ePublishers Weeklyu003c/iu003e, Starredu003cbru003e u003cbru003e "Each arresting, softly penciled panel is surprisingly luminous in spite of its monochromatic palette, and in those gentle scenes, Guojing evokes a wide range of feeling, especially the lonesomeness of the little girl, who never quite seems at ease alone. Reminiscent of Raymond Briggs' classic, The Snowman (1978), this is quiet, moving, playful, and bittersweet all at once." --u003ciu003eBooklistu003c/iu003e, Starredu003cbru003e u003cbru003e "In Guojing's beautiful, wordless storybook, a little Chinese girl left home alone wanders off into the snow and has magical cloud adventures with a benevolent stag." --u003ciu003eShelf Awarenessu003c/iu003e, Starred
