dc.description.abstractThis book has two great claims to fame. First, it is done entirely without text. Secondly, it has Ed Young's delightful wit. The artist's skill in observing and his sense of fun have him including phases of the story often left out or done quickly. Thus we start with the dog sleeping and dreaming. In his dreams he goes wild with a bone. He wakes up to scratch…and sniff. His sniffing leads him to a garbage can, the contents of which he strews about as he finds the bone of which he had had a whiff. After running like crazy, he slows down as he sees something in the water. One of Young's best images has the dog growling fiercely as the bone flies from his mouth. In a human rather than doggy gesture, he stands back in amazement as the bone sinks through the water. Another of Young's best moments comes in the underwater view of the dog's plunge. After the unsuccessful dive, there is the obligatory shake-off of the water. The last image shows the bone resting at the bottom of the river. Do not miss the nice design on the cover that both shows a dog and spells Young. This book is a treasure. It took me some time to learn of it and then longer to find it.en_US
