A young boy wakes up early and has his happiest moments when the rest of the world is asleep and he is with his little dog delivering papers. Beautiful, dream-like illustrations including the night sky changing colors to reveal the day. Teaches the joy and value in hard work.

The story begins in darker shades to represent the night, and the shadows of the world outside while the paperboy goes to work. Simple, straight-forward text is complemented with the acrylic paintings of the landscape around the paperboy and his dog. A feel good story with an ending that reminds me of Cassie's dream of flying from Tar Beach. ( )

A lovely quiet tale of a young boy who gets up before the sun to deliver the morning paper with his dog. The graphic way the houses look in the darkness and the sun rise make this a truly memorable story. ( )

How many paperboys (or girls) are even left? A beautiful glimpse of something I'm pretty sure is gone forever. ( )

A boy and his dog leave their warm house to deliver newspapers before dawn. The boy loves the peace and quiet that comes with being the only person awake. He gets finished just in time when the rest of the world is waking up. He crawls back into bed and remains at peace. ( )
