E HEST,A

A young boy encounters a stray puppy on the beach, but he does not want to be friends.  He is still mourning the death of his good dog Oscar.  But the puppy persists, a storm approaches, and empathy wins out.  Two Amy’s are responsible for this heartfelt story.  The beautiful pencil and watercolor illustrations are by Amy Bates, and the minimalist but telling tale is by Amy Hest.  Check it out today!
