Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This old-fashioned dog story by the author of Karen and With Love from Karen exhibits the pathos of Lassie's adventures without the sentimentality. Sure to tug at animal-lovers' hearts, the tale concerns the tenderly burgeoning friendship of its only characters: a burly Newfoundland dog that emerges from the sea--it was a puzzle whence he had come--and a skinny, dirty, white kitten. Wary of each other at first, the two reconnoiter in a frisky game of wag, advance, pounce, retreat, then proceed to more loving, trusting recreation. The seasons pass; Newf rescues his feline pal from the sea, from a snowdrift, and the friends are happy in their no longer deserted cottage. In clear, active prose, Killilea unfolds her tale so directly that its emotional content may catch readers unaware. In Schoenherr's children's book debut, the artist provides bold, graphic images. These oversize illustrations, in earthy, textured colors, fill up space with a Georgia O'Keeffe-like spareness. A touching tale with a subtle message about interdependence, perfect for reading aloud. All ages. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- Killilea's admiration for Newfoundlands clearly shines through in this story based on a legend from the Gaspe Peninsula. It's a winning tale, despite the fact that the writing occasionally slips into sentimentality and mild anthropomorphism. A large black dog is carried by the waves up onto the shore; there is no clue as to where he comes from. In a deserted cottage he finds a frail, white kitten that he befriends and subsequently rescues from harm on several occasions. The two hunt for food and survive the harsh climate . Schoenherr's distinguished illustrations effectively portray the majesty of this isolated landscape. Heavily textured oil paintings utilize bold perspectives to create drama, while maritime shades of gray-blues and greens capture the sea and sky wilderness. The haunting illustrations, as well as the fact that no humans enter into the picture, add to the mysterious mood and the book's intrigue. --Alexandra Marris, Rochester Public Library, NY
