Snook Alone

(1) K-3 Illustrated by Timothy Basil Ering. Snook, a rat terrier, belongs to Abba Jacob, a monk who lives on an Indian Ocean island. When Snook is mistakenly left on a neighboring island, he weathers a storm, then begins his long wait for Abba Jacob's return. Nelson's imagery-filled text features inventive metaphor and lively simile. Ering's acrylic and ink art depicts heavy- and light-hearted moments equally well.
