Review: Sad, the Dog

Sad, the Dog Sad, the Dog by Sandy Fussell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sad's owners did not like him and left him behind. When the new family arrives at the old house, will they treat him the same?

This a picturebook that has excellent design--from the front endpapers to the back papers. The watercolor illustrations reflect Sad's emotions and feelings of abandonment as well as creating a distinctly engaging atmosphere. Skillfully rendered, these watercolor exude detail and dynamism.

I would give this book 5 stars if the text was slimmed down, spread out and better paced.
