"A timeless tale of friendship by "New York Times "bestselling author Amy Hest.""Once there was a small dog with ""crooked ears. He belonged to no one.""And once there was a wisp of a girl ""named Lia. . . .""The dog who belonged to no one spent ""his days quite alone. . . . He longed for a friend."No one takes notice of a small dog with crooked ears who doesn t have a home. He explores the narrow streets and wide boulevards every day, while across town a little girl named Lia pedals on her bicycle alone, delivering breads and cakes. Both dream of finding a friend, until fate brings them together.With lyrical text by "New York Times "bestselling author Amy Hest and tender watercolors by illustrator Amy Bates, "The Dog Who Belonged to No One "introduces readers to two timeless characters who will touch hearts as they discover how they belong to each other.
