內容簡介 From the creator of the New York Times best-illustrated children's book award winner The Only Child, comes a gorgeous and moving wordless picture book that's perfect for dog lovers.In this heartwarming, wordless picture book that's perfect for dog lovers, a woman visits a park and discovers a pup hiding under a bench--scruffy, scared, and alone. With gentle coaxing, the woman tries to befriend the animal, but the dog is too scared to let her near. Day after day, the woman tries--and day after day, the dog runs away. With perseverance and patience--and help from an enticing tennis ball--a tentative friendship begins. But it's not until a raging storm forces the two together that a joyous and satisfying friendship takes hold. Guojing poignantly explores how trust doesn't always come easily, but how, over time, and with kindness and determination, forever love can grow.Praise for The Only Child:A New York Times Best Illustrated Book"Rare is the book containing great emotional depth that truly resonates across a span of ages: this is one such." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred"Fine draftsmanship, deft pacing, and striking imaginative power distinguish this debut." --Publishers Weekly, Starred"Each arresting, softly penciled panel is surprisingly luminous in spite of its monochromatic palette, and in those gentle scenes, Guojing evokes a wide range of feeling, especially the lonesomeness of the little girl, who never quite seems at ease alone. Reminiscent of Raymond Briggs' classic, The Snowman (1978), this is quiet, moving, playful, and bittersweet all at once." --Booklist, Starred"In Guojing's beautiful, wordless storybook, a little Chinese girl left home alone wanders off into the snow and has magical cloud adventures with a benevolent stag." --Shelf Awareness, Starred【走進閱讀世界｜迷誠品:專文推薦】標題｜牠們用全部的生命愛你：讀完只想抱緊處理的狗狗繪本推薦！ #海狗房東撰文｜海狗房東・編輯｜陳阿髮若你曾經有幸和狗一起生活，以下開放填空：「狗是＿＿＿＿」，你會填入什麼詞呢？朋友？夥伴？家人？毛小孩？ 有沒有可能是英雄？因為牠們用全部的生命愛你，將你從自棄的狀態中營救出來。或者是大智若愚的修行者？早已達到「活在當下」的境界。多半時候，可能就只是你的鐵粉吧，跟前跟後，望向你的眼神充滿愛意，這樣也就足夠了。 現實生活中有各種狗，繪本故事中也是，而且讀者還能看見更多面向，有些添加了一些想像，有些則是在情感面上細細打磨。☞點此進入迷誠品閱讀文章
