Staff Reviews


God got a dog, even though she didn’t mean to. But she felt somewhat responsible so she took it home. With irreverence and poignancy, Cynthia Rylant brings a book of poetry that truly touches on the human spirit in our daily lives. A perfect book for all ages, for both giving and enjoying. (Amanda)

Description


Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and two-time Caldecott Honoree Marla Frazee imagine a God living among us in this spirited and moving collection of illustrated poems.

What if God was living a human existence? What might God do to pass the time? Write a fan letter? Get a desk job? Make spaghetti? Take a bath? Get a dog?

A sublime book for all ages, God Got a Dog celebrates the simple things in our world while taking a long, close look at what it means to be human.

Praise For…


* “Several of the poems from Rylant’s wry meditation God Went to Beauty School (2003) are regathered, rearranged and luminously illustrated by Frazee…. Frazee’s illustrations take the idea of the multiplicity of God in all of us and run with it…. Divinity is indicated with a faint halo, but Frazee never sacrifices the ineffable humanity of each depiction; her Gods are fat, skinny, joyful, contemplative, worn-out…. Funny, devout and oh, so human; this collection hits home.”
