Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Another delightful romp around Madlenkas city block

Madlenka wants a dog! She doesnt really care what kind, so long as its a dog that she can put on a leash and walk around the block. But her mother and father say NO! What is Madlenka to do? It just takes some imagination . . . Madlenkas friends on the block all play along, remembering the dogs of their childhood, and in the end it seems quite possible that theres more to Madlenkas dog than we can see. With his considerable charm, Peter Sís uses lift-up flaps and peek-through windows to bring us into Madlenkas magical world where play and fantasy make wishes come true.

 
Madlenka's Dog is a 2002 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and a 2003 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Review:

"Inspiring memories in the old and imagination in the young, the dog is a noble beast indeed, and Madlenka's Dog's resonant intergenerational connections make it an inspired choice for sharing." Horn Book
