Monica Carnesi (Nancy Paulsen Books/Penguin 2012)(ages 3-5). In January 2010, a little dog was seen floating on an ice flow in the middle of the Vistula River (Poland), some sixty miles from the Baltic. Attempts to rescue him proved fruitless. Two days after he was first spotted, the research vessel Baltica, fifteen miles off the coast, spotted him. Several attempts and dunkings later, he was brought aboard, and is now an honored and dry member of the crew.
LITTLE DOG LOST is charming and sweet tale, the simple text and expressive drawings richly evoking the heartwarming drama.
