Horn Book Magazine
Juanito, who speaks only Spanish, has just arrived in New York from Puerto Rico and he's lost his dog. Searching through the city, he meets children from Chinatown, Little Italy, Park Avenue, and Harlem and manages to makes his problem clear to all of them in spite of language difficulties. Lively pictures in brilliant red and black illustrate this entertaining reissue.
