Let me introduce myself. My name is Lucy and I am a little, stray dog. This is my unique story told in four acts. You'll meet a little girl (Eleanor) who lowers food on a long string from her apartment to gift me with treats which I love. And there is also her father who is a talented but frustrated juggler.

Up in their apartment Lucy's father does very well with his juggling but when he takes the stage or is in front of an audience, he is uncomfortable and makes a mess of it. Poor Man!

Can you imagine how he feels? Eleanor feels sorry for him just as she does for me. She does what she can to make everything right but there are some glitches along the way before everything turns out as it should and we all bond together.

You'll like this cinematic book with its changing perspectives, original story line and illustrations if you like to try new books which can be a little more challenging than most common fare that just feature bright colors and simple content. Probably to really enjoy this book you should be at least six or seven years old or be a reader who loves underdogs. Hope you enjoy my story!
