The endearing Daisy gets distracted fetching her ball and gets temporarily lost. ( )
  Sullywriter | May 22, 2015 |
This modern fantasy is about a dog named Daisy who begins to chase a squirrel. Without paying attention Daisy runs off into an area where she has never been before. Daisy was lost. After a lot of searching of both Daisy, and Daisy's owner, they both finally find one another. Daisy is very happy when she is found, and her owner is happy as well. ( )

This is a great book! Though it has no words and the story line is simple, the pictures are beautifully painted onto the pages. The puppy runs away to catch a ball and gets misguided by a squirrel, and sadly gets lost! It takes some time but soon they get reunited. ( )

almost wordless ... getting lost and being found again ( )

Daisy's back. She, her blue ball and her owner are off to the park. Somehow the cliche of dogs following squirrels doesn't feel overdone in this book. Daisy is distracted from her beloved blue ball and runs off in search of the squirrel. Raschka manages to convey the universal fear of isolation in the look of one forlorn little doggie. Daisy's guttural "aawoooooooooooooooo" emanates from a scared place that we share. Her subsequent reunion with her owner is equally emotional. Kudos to Raschka for a book that resonates across species.

Because this book is so relatable, I would definitely use it with my elementary students. I think I have enough books for that wordless book week I mentioned in another review. Now to think about the order of presentation. This book and A Ball Daisy would likely come early on in the week, maybe as openers, as they require a bit less interpretation than some other wordless books. Great warmup for drawing inferences and providing "textual" support for those inferences. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449817415, Hardcover)

Young readers, teachers, and librarians will be excited to follow Daisy the dog on her next adventure. With the same emotional intensity that he brought to hisNew York Times bestselling and New York Times Best Illustrated and Caldecott Medal-winning picture book A Ball for Daisy, Raschka has created a story that explores fear as only he can. Any child who has ever felt lost will relate to Daisy's despair upon finding herself in an unfamiliar part of the park after chasing a squirrel. In a nearly wordless picture book, Daisy encounters the unease of being lost and the joys of being found. Raschka's signature swirling, impressionistic illustrations and his affectionate story will particularly appeal to young dog lovers, teachers, parents and, of course, the legions of Daisy fans out there.
