Another delightful romp around Madlenka’s city block

Madlenka wants a dog! She doesn’t really care what kind, so long as it’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 . . . Madlenka’s friends on the block all play along, remembering the dogs of their childhood, and in the end it seems quite possible that there’s more to Madlenka’s dog than we can see. With his considerable charm, Peter Sís uses lift-up flaps and peek-through windows to bring us into Madlenka’s magical world where play and fantasy make wishes come true.
 
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.
