An intricate insight into human instinct when it meets something unusual, to react with fear and distort the reality beyond proportion, or to bravely investigate the source. The approach: I love that the parents are part of the group that's afraid of the dog and that the little girl is the one who sees past it all. The family's dialogue has a comforting feel to it, with just enough repetition so kids can get familiar or help in the storytelling.

Levi Pinfold plays with scale convincingly and creates atmospheric scenes that will pull your focus and grab you attention.

Black Dog' was a delight, and a beautiful picture-book that I plan to share with children in the future. It's not scary, it's sweet and has a positive "moral", if you will, without reading like a moral tale. Le illustrazioni colorate sono bellissime, con il loro contrasto tra i colori caldi e saturi degli interni e il freddo delle ambientazioni esterne, dove a prevalere sono il bianco della neve e il nero del cane ,con la sola eccezione del puntolino giallo che è il cappottino di Small Hope, che sembra quasi dipingere con i suoi saltelli e le sue corse il paesaggio, portando il colore e il calore della famiglia anche nei luoghi desolati e freddi dove si trova il cane nero.I liked how there was usually the main illustration on the right-hand side of the page and then small frames around the text giving a bit more detail to the story. The story gains memento through the repetition and the language, especially read aloud, it is captivating. A family of furry animals grow too big for their home in an old mattress and have to go out into the unknown world of the back yard to find a new one.

This charming tale of a young family literally rocked by the appearance of a black dog on their property, is sure to grip young and old readers alike from the first page. Questo libro parla di paura e di apparenza, di inganni,di come le difficoltà non faranno altro che crescere e ingigantirsi sempre di più se non vengono affrontate né conosciute, ma parla anche di amore, di coraggio e di affetto. But really, for us, the story was about the sweet collection we can have with animals, especially animals in need.

So much to explore, so many details, in the illustrations from the small panels on each of the two-page spreads to the large color illustration (except for when Small first meets the Black Dog, which of course needs to dominate the two pages).Panic and anxiety can be so easy to spread, especially when (as it was in the Hope family) the true circumstances have been distorted.
