“This book is a small masterpiece.” –Cynthia Rylant, Newberry Medal Winner.
A “children’s novel for all ages.” The perfect family read-aloud.
Without Mama, life in the log house at the forest’s edge can be lonely for a young girl. But there’s Papa for company, and the two mules, Bartholomew and Thaddeus Frisco, and the big old dog that mysteriously showed up at the end of winter. The girl longs for her mother, but other than that, everything about her little homestead seems right and in its place–that is, until a powerful storm settles over the valley and threatens to take it all away. As the flood waters rise and separate the girl from her papa, will there be anything that can save her?
“The Angel Knew Papa And The Dog” is a lyrically-told tale of a little girl’s faith, personal courage, and amazing survival in the wilderness.
