A lone dog comes upon a group of kids playing ball and with leaping ease, joins the game. They re all having so much fun, they don t see a sad little boy standing off by himself. Who will spy the boy and invite him to play? With arresting images by a master illustrator and a simple, touching text by his son, SAY HELLO evokes the joy and relief of finding a new friend just when it's needed the most.
A beautiful pairing of...sparse rhyming text...[and] simple drawings.
