Lucy - Randy Cecil

Staff Pick

As soon as a little stray dog awakens, she runs through the streets of Bloomville to stand in front of the apartment building where Eleanor and her would-be juggler father, Sam, reside. How that small dog comes to be known as Lucy (Candlewick, $19.99), find a home, forge a lasting friendship with Eleanor, and help Sam gain the confidence to achieve his dream is told in four acts. Author/illustrator Randy Cecil’s detailed, monochromatic art enhances the book’s theatrical format: the circular illustrations surrounded by white space on each page create the illusion of action occurring in a spotlight. Together, text and illustration present a sweet, attractive, and satisfying story. Ages 6-9.
