Summary:
Cindy, who has to work all day, fights to keep the small stray dog she finds on the street. You respond to the universal pet story before the illustrations show that Cindy is a young woman with Down's syndrome. This book is remarkable in telling it as Cindy sees it. Lightburn's realistic pictures in soft-tone colored pencil have the same beautiful sense of fragility, steadfastness, and connection.
