"'Go  get it, Daisy!'"

In  DAISY GETS LOST, Daisy young human companion throws a blue ball into
the  woods.  Daisy gets distracted from retrieving the ball by a squirrel and
embarks upon a spirited chase that, predictably, ends with a tree.   But
then Daisy is confused about which way is home.  Daisy's young human is very
worried  about Daisy's disappearance, and she loudly calls the dog's name.

Daisy  proceeds to howl; the pair reunite; and this results in mega-hugs.
Stories  about the early fears of losing something precious to us or of
becoming lost  appear regularly in picture books for preschoolers.  This one
certainly ranks among the best of the lot.

The  illustrations here are consistent with those of the Caldecott-winning
A BALL FOR  DAISY, with a couple of the spreads -- showing Daisy immersed
in the woods, the sunlight creating colors amidst the trees -- being out of
this world.  A particular illustration here -- one that depicts  Daisy with
her front paws up on the squirrel's tree in the instant  that she realizes
her dilemma -- captures the emotion of that  moment so perfectly, and is so
incredibly beautiful, that I want to  frame it or something.
I  can’t wait to see what Daisy does next!
