Mônica Carnesi is a warmly told and beautifully illustrated book that will draw you in from the very moment you see it.
Mônica recently sent me this gorgeous book with postcard and a coloring page of Baltic (super cute and fun, Mônica!), the little dog who in January, 2012 was seen floating on an ice floe on the Vistula River near the city of Grudziadz, Poland, 60 miles inland from the Bay of Gdansk in the Baltic Sea. Mônica's tender illustrations deliver the feel of the vast landscape of the cold Baltic Sea and you cannot help but feel the drama build as you worry about the sweet little dog who is lost at sea.
I highly recommend this book and so do my daughters! Thank you Mônica, for sending me your beautiful book to add to my collection, of which I will cherish through the years. You are such a talented author and illustrator and such a wonderful friend.
