This book is so simple but so delightful. A tale of finding the right person / dog at the right time. The illustrations add so much. A treasure to have on your family bookshelf.

This is a delightful and whimsical story about a kid who desperately wanted a dog, and a dog who desperately wanted a kid.

While they each waited for that other magical person to show up in their lives, they made substitutes out of ferns and flowers and sand and snow.

And they waited. And waited.

Because each of them knew that they would immediately recognise which dog/kid was meant for them when they saw them. And they were right...

The story is simple but so very sweet, the accompanying illustrations are wonderful, and so is the wordplay. I cannot recommend this one too highly!
