Everywhere with You

by Carlie Sorosiak (Author) Devon Holzwarth (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

The heartwarming friendship between a girl and the dog next door tenderly evokes the power of stories to bring--and keep--us together. Two houses stand side by side: one is home to a dog, the other to a young girl. Though a fence divides them, girl and dog build a sweet and sturdy friendship rooted in make-believe . . . and are lonely no more.

Paired with moving illustrations and based on a true story, this endearing tale from the author of I, Cosmo testifies to the transformative power of creativity and inter-species friendship.

Starred Review
With warm colors, curving lines, and rhythmic repetition of forms, the mixed-media illustrations beautifully portray the setting as well as the main characters and their growing friendship, while the richly detailed dream scenes have a more otherworldly quality. A heartening picture book.
