Overview

A scary misunderstanding turns into a wonderful new friendship in this sweet story, illustrated with great charm by a talented new artist. Every day little Fay walks to school with her friends. Every day as she passes, a big, black dog barks "hello." But every day Fay ignores him. Until one day, coming home alone, Fay is forced to pay attention. The big, black dog growls angrily at her. "SAY HELLO!" he demands, terrifying poor little Fay so she can't eat a bite of lunch. Her concerned parents help Fay see herself and the big, black dog in a different light, and with new understanding and self-confidence, Fay makes a fine new friend.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Tiny Fay is frightened on her daily walk to and from school by a huge black dog who just wants to be a friend. With the help of her father and a piece of bacon, she overcomes her fear to become fast friends with the dog. The lively, perfectly executed illustrations make this book a success. Fay's emotions are perfectly apparent from her down turned whiskers to her delight in snuggling up with the dog. Each page is marvelously executed to emphasize the differences in size between the small, brown, pink eared mice and their surroundings. The scene showing Fay's father dragging a mirror is a delight. Best of all is Fay's dress which is covered with diminutive red and black ladybugs. This is sure to be a hit at story time. 2003, North-South Books, Ages 4 to 6.
