Illustrated by the son of Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth's drawings shine in this story about the loss of a coonhound named Sammy. The drawings convey a genuine love between Sammy and his family. There is an old school feel to the books with its page borders and dialogue. This book could easily be set in the 1930's. Overall a sad, but beautiful book.
