Summary
A poignant picture book about a young girl, who in the face of her parents' divorce, turns to the one constant in her life-her dog Fred.



Sometimes I live with my mom. Sometimes I live with my dad. But Fred stays with me.



Told from the point of view of a young child whose parents are divorced, Fred Stays with Me follows a girl and her dog, Fred, from one parent's house to the other's, giving her a sense of continuity and stability. With a simple text and childlike language, the story expresses and addresses a child's concerns, highlights the friendship between child and pet, presents a common ground for the parents, and resolves conflict in a positive way. Tricia Tusa's charming and whimsical artwork adds a light, happy feel to this poignant--but not overly sentimental--story.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A small girl's bond with her beloved pet helps her handle the disruption of her parents' divorce. She has to sleep in two different beds in two different homes, but wherever she goes, her dog, Fred, stays with her. He does make trouble--barking at the poodle that lives next door to Mom's house, shaking mud all over her car seats, eating Dad's socks--but when the grown-ups object, she is adamant that she will never let him go. Kids will enjoy the simple, first-person narrative and the playful art, in shades of brown and red, that shows the mayhem Fred causes and the power he gives the child because he will never leave her. Shown from the girl's viewpoint, the pictures do not include the grown-ups. For more picture books about shuttling between parents' homes, pair this with the titles in the Read-alikes Mom's House, Dad's House, in the March 1, 2003, issue of Booklist. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2007 Booklist"
