youA tender romance between a lonely little dog and a lonely little girl plays out with visual humor, gentle tension and leads to a satisfying and inevitable climax.  Both are in the park and both watch a parade of dogs and owners pass by—each one thinking how they would love that dog (or that owner) until finally they notice each other and it’s destiny fulfilled.  The artwork has a quirky hip feel which gives it spice.  Nice to pair this with Chris Raschka’s Yo! Yes?
