Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This tender story will touch your heart if you ever had the privilege  of  having a pet.  We all know how we love our pets dearly and find it hard to be separated from them.  

A cute little boy with Down syndrome is very attached to his beloved dog.  They have been together since his birth. The best friends are inseparable.  When it's time for the boy to head off to school both are heartbroken and yearn for each other's company.  The brilliant little boy discovers a way for both to feel each other's love during the huge gap in the day when they are apart.  

This book is perfect for little ones who are off to school for the first time or experiencing other changes that may occur.  The illustrations are full of emotion and engaging.  They enrich the text greatly. I know this story will connect with many readers of all ages.   I highly, highly recommend this book.

About the Illustrator

Arthur Lin is an artist based in San Francisco, drawn by the storytelling of Sunday comics and various children’s books. He received his master’s degree in illustration in 2010 and has been illustrating books ever since. As a brand-new father, he was fortunate to capture the funny interactions between his newborn and dog, which provided a lot of inspiration for this story. Although they don’t always get along they are already best buddies!
