Mountain Dog
A Novel in Verse by Margarita Engle
TLA BluebonnetSM Nominee
Kids Wings Award Book
Junior Library Guild Selection
A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2013

Don't miss this book and literature guide! It is uniquely exciting, strong in character, touching in a special uncle's touch that helps a boy lost in darkness find the light at the top of a mountain. Throughout, character traits sprout, grow, and blossom to replace the evil in Tony's early life with the beauty and strength of discovering nature, gentleness, faith, compassion, forgiveness, courage, trust, and playfulness in the Sierra Mountains through the love of a father-figure and a special dog.

The blank-verse format offers easy, visually welcoming space, with some challenging vocabulary while amazing full-page pen-and-ink drawings model the visualization contained in beautifully literary descriptions.
