Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Ally's allergies prevent her from having the real dog she desires, so she uses her imagination to create substitutes through the seasons of the year. In winter, when other children make snowmen, she makes a snow dog. In spring, when other children pick flowers, she makes a flower dog. In summer, she makes a sand dog, and in fall, a leaf dog. Each time, the others laugh at her, but her creations always follow her home. They play together through the season until her pet fades, and she draws pictures of her new unique canine friends until the cycle starts again. The cartoon illustrations have childlike lines that show the world as Ally would imagine and draw it, and the book concludes with instructions for making "A Dog Without Snow" from cardboard. While the book's overarching tone shows a triumph of spirit over circumstance, a note of loneliness and isolation permeates the story throughout.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA

From Booklist

Ally longs for a dog, but unfortunately they make her sneeze. Still, she draws pictures of dogs, and one winter day while the neighborhood kids are building snowmen, Ally makes a dog of snow. Snow Dog follows her home, where they share good times until the weather warms and he melts. In the spring, she creates Flower Dog, a good companion until the blossoms wither. That summer, at the beach, Ally makes Sand Dog, and in the autumn, Leaf Dog. When winter comes, she welcomes Snow Dog once again. Upbeat and imaginative, the story moves along steadily to its satisfying conclusion. Dog lovers will fall for each of the affable, energetic dogs portrayed in the brightly colorful mixed-media artwork. The illustrations capture the tone of the text and personalities of the characters. Portraying a self-reliant girl who finds her way to happiness through play, this picture book will find a receptive audience among imaginative children. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan
