Description
In this spare, touching portrait of Billie "Lady Day" Holiday for readers 4 to 8 from the author of Georgia in Hawaii: When Georgia O'Keeffe Painted What She Pleased, we see how the lonely, troubled life of the gifted jazz singer was brightened by the many dogs she kept. One in particular, a boxer named Mister, was her favorite and often her closest companion. In Vanessa Brantley Newton's bright watercolor collages we see Mister waiting in the wings, giving Lady Day courage while he is happy just to hear her singing. But when Lady Day has to leave home for a year (the author explains in a note that Holiday was serving a prison term), she worries about whether Mister will remember her.
