What's Floaty About

Publisher Summary

Blah! Mr. Raisin is a bit of a grump. He lives all alone in a little house, and he likes it that way just fine. One day, a mysterious basket appears on Mr. Raisin’s doorstep. When he opens it up, it seems there’s nothing inside . . . until he notices a floating dog bobbing along his ceiling. What follows is a heartwarming, hilarious tale about embracing the unexpected—and finding friendship that takes you to new heights.

A delightful book filled about the wonderful friendship that develops between one very crotchety old man and one very light dog. This particular dog’s unusual proclivity for floating adds humor and a novelty to the story that makes this a fresh take on a familiar tale of friendship and the illustrations beautifully convey the disposition of the old man and his changing feelings towards Floaty. Utterly enjoyable!
