Another delightful romp around Madlenkaâ€™s city blockMadlenka wants a dog! She doesnâ€™t really care what kind, so long as itâ€™s a dog that she can put on a leash and walk around the block. But her mother and father say NO! What is Madlenka to do? It just takes some imagination . . . Madlenkaâ€™s friends on the block all play along, remembering the dogs of their childhood, and in the end it seems quite possible that thereâ€™s more to Madlenkaâ€™s dog than we can see. With his considerable charm, Peter SĂs uses lift-up flaps and peek-through windows to bring us into Madlenkaâ€™s magical world where play and fantasy make wishes come true.Â Madlenka's Dog is a 2002 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and a 2003 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
