Description
Twice a finalist for the National Book Award and a winner of the 2012 Frost Medal, poet Marilyn Nelson here pens a soulful parable for all ages about faith, love, and belonging, starring a little terrier you will fall in love with. Abba Jacob is a monk tending an island hermitage, and his job is to pray and work. Snook is his dog, "a black-on-white bundle of intelligent energy with brown cheeks and eyebrows and black floppy ears," and it is his job to catch rats and mice and to be Abba Jacob's shadow. The two are sent to another island in the atoll—one to catalog species, the other to reduce the rats and mice that threaten seabird nests—but a storm forces Abba Jacob to leave while Snook is off hunting. The little dog is alone on the tiny island, longing for his master's scent or voice. But Snook also witnesses such amazing events as ancient sea turtles laying their eggs, and finally realizes that the love his master gave him is with him still, and part of him. Timothy Basil Ering, who illustrated the Newbery Medal winner The Tale of Despereaux, gives us ink drawings, color sketches, and fully realized paintings that perfectly capture Snook's winsome expressions and boundless vitality, as well as the world of sea and sky and sand that he shares with his master.
