Description
The often ambiguous, ever intriguing Edward Gorey provided the remarkable illustrations for this 1968 tale by Rhoda Levine, presented here in a handsome New York Review of Books edition for all ages. They are haunting images, though not in the usual Gorey way of ghosts and shadowy figures; rather, they are beautiful hand-tinted drawings of a playful boy, his thoughtful older brother, and the enormous, enigmatic sheepdog they found in their back yard, who seems to be waiting for ... something. Waiting for what? The younger brother wonders. Dinner? A lollipop? A stray cat? Someone to talk to? No, what the dog wants is a name. And not just any name, but the right name.

"Gentle color washes over Edward Gorey's illustrations of spindly boys and shaggy dog and skies. They set just the right note for this story that achieves a sensitive equilibrium of pathos and humor, a total effect that is sentimental without apology and optimistic without reason."NYTimes
