Last year I sent this book to my nephew Justin for his 3rd bday.
Madlenka's Dog by Peter Sis. It's his hands down favorite, he asks for it by name nightly and the only book takes on trips.
It may be for children but the illustrations are worthy of framing.
Although Peter Sis has published more than 20 books, he began his career as a filmmaker. His work is in the permanent collection at MOMA New York. He has received numerous awards for his illustrations, both in editorial and children's books. To read more about Peter click here
