Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chester loves his family and wants nothing more than to spend time with them. But work and school are keeping the family extremely busy and Chester is taking a backseat. When the family forgets to take him for his walk, again, Chester decides hes had enough: Its time to find a new home.

But when Chester is turned away by a flock of forest birds and taken in by a wealthy woman who treats him more like a toy than a dog, Chester soon discovers that old homes are not so easily replaced. Ayano Imai presents a quirky tale for anyone who ever thought the grass was greener on the other side.

Review:

"This slight story is made special by rather quirky soft pastel illustrations." School Library Journal

Review:

"Imai's illustrations are a delight, in a soft, dreamy palette with a hint of mystery." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Imai combines an almost surrealistic style...with a centered plotline that keeps its focus throughout." Booklist

I just love the very ethereal paintings. The layout, typeface and design of this book all complement the endearing story.
The end papers are absolutely charming. I would buy this book just for the illustrations, but the story, and the way the illustrations add information and meaning to the words, is wonderful. With all the commercial junk out there, it is nice to see a book that is thoughtfully created, and one that you will want to read again and again.
