  • Overview

    The-Dog-Next-Year is the story of a classic mismatch. Six-year-old Lissa has almost everything a girl could want, except the puppy who runs through her dreams at night and answers to a secret name. When a dog does arrive in her life, thought, it's not here dreamed of "dog-next-year" but Jingles, an ageing and somewhat smelly refugee. Over the seasons of one year, Lissa dreams of what could be and comes to terms with what is.

    Nancy Keating's colour-drenched illustrations capture the seasons in and around St. John's, Newfoundland, and bring Lissa's world vividly to life.
