Lucy

Randy Cecil

This is the perfect book for dog lovers of all ages.

Lucy is a small dog without a home. She once had one, but she remembers it only in her dreams. Eleanor is a little girl who looks forward to feeding the stray dog that appears beneath her window each day. Eleanor’s father is a juggler with stage fright.

The stories of these three delightful characters converge in this truly original extended picture book - a classic in the making!

Review

Lucy is a handsome book that occupies a space between picture book and novel with lovely, soft duotone illustrations.

Set in a quaint little town, this book chronicles the daily routines of a scrappy, energetic homeless pup; the kind young girl who sneaks her breakfast sausage to the dog; and her father, a skilled but erratic juggler. The moments when their stories unite become catalysts for a warm and fulfilling ending.

It’s a lovely book to read with children who are moving away from picture books or for independent readers aged 6–9 years.
