Wha-ooo-ooo-roo " Lucy is having a little trouble adjusting to her new home. Droll illustrations pair with a charming and insightful text to offer a relatable portrait of what it's like to get to know someone new, and to take on their concerns as if they were your own. Kids will recognize and feel empathy both for Lucy, a shelter dog who sometimes tries her adopter's patience, and for the little girl who helps him become part of the family. Featuring kids' enduring love for both dogs and stuffed animals, Harriet Ziefert and Barroux's latest collaboration hits all the right-est and brightest notes in this simply wise and wisely simple doggy tale.
