In Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant's classic bestseller, the author comforts readers young and old who have lost a dog. Recommended highly by pet lovers around the world, Dog Heaven not only comforts but also brings a tear to anyone who is devoted to a pet. From expansive fields where dogs can run and run to delicious biscuits no dog can resist, Rylant paints a warm and affectionate picture of the ideal place God would, of course, create for man's best friend. The first picture book illustrated by the author, Dog Heaven is enhanced by Rylant's bright, bold paintings that perfectly capture an afterlife sure to bring solace to anyone who is grieving.
As a child in West Virginia, Cynthia Rylant never dreamed of becoming a writer. In her free time, she devoured Archie comic books and paperback romances and enjoyed the outdoors. But after taking one college English class, she was, ?hooked on great writing? I didnít know about this part of me until I went to college-didnít know I loved beautiful stories.Ē And one night, inspired by the Southern writer James Agee, she sat down and wrote When I Was Young in the Mountains. Named a Caldecott Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, it was an instant success.
Since that night, Rylant hasnít stopped creating wonderful books. Her stories explore friendship, love, grief, and other mysteries, and often draw on her memories of growing up in Appalachia. ?I get a lot of personal gratification thinking of those people who donít get any attention in the world and making them really valuable in my fiction-making them absolutely shine with their beauty.Ē
She lives with her many pets in the Pacific Northwest.
This is my go-to book when someone loses a beloved dog - even if the owner is an adult. An award winning, beautifully illustrated book that brings comfort to anyone who has just lost a beloved dog. It brings young and old together, and also makes a truly wonderful gift for a new veterinarian, or a favorite vet with whom one has just lost a dog. Also available for cats.
