TOBY

by

Hazel Mitchell

 

 

Rescue dogs can be afraid and need time to adjust to their new home and family. Toby is a good example of how a dog can wriggle his way into the heart of a family using their cute personality. I'm impressed by the boy's hard work with Toby before his Dad can decide that maybe Toby isn't the right dog for them.

The boy learns responsibility as he works with Toby and we see his love for the dog, and his compassion that Toby needs to adjust. With the delightful and vivid illustrations, also done by the author, we see the bonding process that goes on between them.

Toby is a cute, engaging story about friendship and love that forms between a child and a dog. This book is well worth the addition to any child's, classroom or library shelf. 5 STARS!

book bag, Bodleian Library Store, University of Oxford

Saw this pic, found the link to the book bag. I love museum and library stores. :D

 

"Before the advent of dust-jackets many books, especially those for children, were bound in brightly coloured cloth with pictorial blocking in gold and colours, here a splendid shelf of colourful books from the Bodleian's Opie collection appear on this sturdy bag."

Someday, maybe, ah, who knows. I'd love to have a cloth-bound children's book made, with gold letters and such. But even Books of Wonder couldn't quite pull off that feeling of a turn-of-the-century book with their re-issued OZ series.

 

Lost arts. Well, we can dream and make facsimiles. :)

Illustration o'clock: Tanglewood Tales (by Nathaniel Hawthorne) 1921, illustrated by Virginia Frances Sterrett. Virginia illustrated only 3 titles for Penn Publishing Company, the third being Arabian Nights (which took her 3 yrs to complete), due to succumbing to tuberculosis.

Free: Download the whole book at archive.org: http://archive.org/details/tanglewoodtales00hawt

And check out the 50watts gallery. Her abilities astonish, and her vision rather makes my heart hurt. Look at the page with the bushes made of bubbles.
