My Dog Is Lost!
Thomas Y. Crowell (now Viking), 1960
Juanito has just moved from Puerto Rico to the big city, where everything is so strange and different, including the language. Now he has lost his dog and has no one to help him look. But as he searches through the city, Juanito finds new friends. This refreshing book, which predates The Snowy Day, displays all of Keats’s mastery of fusing image with story.
