PUPPY AND I

* 2016 Hsin-Yi Children’s Literature Award

 

Kuo Nai-Wen’s wordless story about love, companionship, and aging drags us along in spite of ourselves, as we watch an old man dream of the dog that lit up his life as a boy. As with every such friendship, grief comes in the end; and from that moment all the way into his old age, the man raises no other pets. But once the dream ends and morning comes, he puts himself together for a lonely walk in the park. Little does he know what chance awaits him there.…

 

In variable panels of beautifully wrought black-and-white drawings, a boy and his puppy leap from one adventure to another, soaking up sun, rain, and the wonders of the natural world. Zhou Jian-Xin shows us how the worldless story can sometimes say infinitely more than the written narrative, as his images expand, contract, and shiver with a palpable sense of life.
