Amazon DescriptionAn enormous black dog and a very tiny little girl star in this offbeat tale about confronting one’s fears.
When a huge black dog appears outside the Hope family home, each member of the household sees it and hides. Only Small, the youngest Hope, has the courage to face the black dog, who might not be as frightening as everyone else thinks.
One Potato Review
Newcomer Levi Pinfold writes, illustrates, and very nearly animates the story of one young family barricading itself into a house against the legendary behemoth of the title. This book evokes one of those classical renderings of The Night Before Christmas – so cozy are the interiors, so tempting to hang out in your pajamas all day – though Pinfold has in mind a very different sort of mythmaking here: namely the seeds of hysteria which can spread between too many like-minded people who need to get out more.
