Experience the simple joy of a dog’s day at the beach in this vibrant picture book from the acclaimed author-illustrator of Nest, which the New York Times Book Review said was “certain to please aesthetically minded children and adults” and that Shelf Awareness called “a quiet masterpiece.”
As with her debut picture book, Nest, “Hurley lets her bright, clean illustrations do her storytelling, limiting the text on each page to a single, evocative word” (Publishers Weekly) in this delightful depiction of a dog’s day at the beach and the joy a simple ball can bring.
With minimal prose and illustrations that echo the patterns of nature, Fetch is a story of the thrill of adventure and the joy of returning home.
