During a violent snow-storm an Irish wolfhound named Teddy rescues 2 young children, Flora and Nickel, from their car. The children are not surprised to discover that the dog can speak human words. Patricia MacLachlan has already explained this to us in the epigraph: "Dogs speak words, but only poets and children hear." Teddy's owner Sylvan, a poet, has recently passed away and the dog is living alone in his cottage in the woods. The children and the dog have found each other at the perfect time. A simply magical and gentle story about love, family and grief.  (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award, 2018)
