About this deal

Un bestione che però sembra non avere bisogno d'altro che di affetto, che quando si trova davanti alla piccola Small Hope non fa altro che portare il suo nasone all'altezza del suo viso e soffiarle delicatamente in faccia, che pur di seguirla supera ogni ostacolo che la bimba gli pone davanti.

Le illustrazioni sono qualcosa di fenomenale, ricchissime di dettagli ed estremamente suggestive, proprio come in una fiaba. Le illustrazioni colorate sono bellissime, con il loro contrasto tra i colori caldi e saturi degli interni e il freddo delle ambientazioni esterne, dove a prevalere sono il bianco della neve e il nero del cane ,con la sola eccezione del puntolino giallo che è il cappottino di Small Hope, che sembra quasi dipingere con i suoi saltelli e le sue corse il paesaggio, portando il colore e il calore della famiglia anche nei luoghi desolati e freddi dove si trova il cane nero. But really, for us, the story was about the sweet collection we can have with animals, especially animals in need.

Warm colors for the interiors help convey the coziness and safety of the house and family contrasted with the starker colors of the cold, snowy outside. Panic and anxiety can be so easy to spread, especially when (as it was in the Hope family) the true circumstances have been distorted.

The underlying emotional message about confronting your fears is so skilfully and entertainingly conveyed that this stunningly illustrated book works on a very deep level as well as being a reassuring bedtime read.However much you love dogs small children do need to know that you can't just go up to a dog you don't know like that. As this is a book aimed at small children I wasn't sure this was an altogether good message, there's a massive dog that everyone is scared of so you could be seen as a hero to go and make friends with it? With its frosty cover and thick pages, it could be a cherished favorite in anyone's home, to be experienced time after time. From a young age he loved books and comics and spent many of his days drawing and writing his own stories. I confess to a great deal of sentimentality here: my two beloved 100+ pound black dogs are no longer with me, but when they were still alive, they definitely frightened people.
