Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review In her new book, veteran author Fox (Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, 2008) tells the story of a long-eared puppy who wanders far from home before realizing there s no place like it. The tale is told in repeating rhymes and questions that give it a jaunty air and will help young readers with word recognition. The canine hero, Nellie Belle, is first seen in a flower-filled yard, peering through a hole in the fence that reveals a lighthouse off in the distance. Austin s (Fire Engine No. 9, 2015) digital illustrations are as bright and lively as Nellie Belle, and he uses several panels to show the dog digging her way out of the yard. Ever curious, she moves from street to beach to the sea, joyfully greeting passersby, seagulls, and a seal. When the pup comes back from swimming to investigate a dark and scary park, she hightails it to her doggie bed, making for a very cozy end to her far-flung adventure.--Booklist December 15, 2015
