A series of 62 pencil sketches carry the entire story of a dog who’s thrown from a car at the side of a highway, and spends the day fending for himself. After causing an accident when a car swerves to avoid hitting him, the dog wanders for miles across fields until it reaches a town. This unusual, wordless book evokes a strong emotional response in readers who will likely feel compelled to expand upon the story using their own words. (Ages 8-14)
