Kevin Henkes' books for young adults have a certain style. They are less plot driven and more character and relationship driven. Episodes are related, even entire chapters, that develop the character. Kevin Henkes' books for young adults have a certain style. Пользовательский отзыв - Cheryl in CC NV - LibraryThing.

Do you know anything about Dad going to Stuart Walker’s house? she asked. He didn’t mention it to me this morning. He was in his studio when I left. He was in his studio when I left e closed door, so maybe, just maybe, he’s gotten over this block. Fanny was using the stationary phone in the kitchen. She wove the cord through her fingers, then poked her pinkie through the coils. Following me around, as usual, while I was getting dressed. She was lying on her afghan when I left.

As in Henkes's other novels (and in contrast to his picture books), the glacial, evenly modulated plot requires patient readers; the reward is a cast of good-hearted, strongly individual characters moving through a simply told but multilayered story, rich in imagery and feeling. When the book opens, moody fits brought on by a combination of creative block (he's a painter) and the approach of his 60th birthday make matters worse; when Henry announces at the last minute that he won't attend his own party, Fanny dispatches a balloon with a note attached: & this very moment I don't understand my.

Moving and heartwarming, Henkes has penned another sure future award winner! - VOYA. Publishers Weekly Best Book School Library Journal Best Book Child Magazine Children’s Book Award Winner.

Relates twelve-year-old Fanny's love-hate relationship with her father, a temperamental artist, who has given Fanny a new dog
Interesting story with great potential for classroom lessons, work, and discussion about relationships, growing up, personality types, generation gaps, abusive situations (borderline), psychology, and packed full of different forms of figurative language....really, really can be found everywhere throughout the book. Very useful for students to learn how to picture things as they read and also for those who are not native speakers of English (to learn more about cultural references, etc.). I am using in a Grade 5 classroom.
Perfect for teens
I would say that this is one of the best books I've read in a while. Almost every chapter makes you want to read more and I ended up reading this book hours at a time.
We share the same story - an old dog came into our lives and has given us such joy.

This is a children’s book about a 12-yr.-old girl, her dad, and her dog. It is told in first person by the girl, Fanny. The dad is an artist and teaches at a university. This book focuses on the girl’s views and things that are important to her. She has a bunch of childish things she treasures and gets upset when her father runs a “stupid hunt” in her room to hunt down stupid things that can be thrown out She is mad at her dad over getting rid of their first dog, Nellie and has a hard time letting it go.

This book may appeal to a young girl, but I was not impressed with it. The book cover is very misleading because it implies the dog is Marie, but it is not! I liked Dinner, the second dog in the book, but there was not much of a climax or great ending to this one. The gist of the story is how Fanny and her dad mend their relationship. It just sort of fell flat for me. It was okay, but was eager to move on to something else.
This story about a girl and her dream to own a dog are really touching. The father's character was a large part of the story, and although it was pretty harsh, the story wouldn't be as touching if he weren't like that. The ending is great, but I don't like that she took up knitting just because a guy she liked did it. I've done that before, and it's really bad, because you make the committment to some activity for the wrong motives, and sure, you enjoy it when the guy you like is doing it also, but when you stop liking the guy, or the guy quits or something, you start to hate it. I just don't think books that are meant for this age group should advocate this. Overall, though, it was pretty enjoyable.

This book talks about the life of a 12-year-old girl whose name is Fanny. Her farther is an artist and is very hard to live with. His business is not going too well and he gets upset easily, particularly when he is not satisfied with his work. Fanny has always loved dogs, one night when her dad was not able to show up for his 60-year-old birthday party he brought back a Labrador puppy. However, her dad needs concentration for his work, and when the puppy began breaking things and fooling around at the house, he sent the puppy away to someone. Fanny is heart broken and misdirected her anger, frustration, and emotional outrage. One night Fanny's father comes home with another dog named Dinner. But Fanny is afraid, she worries that Dinner would ruin her dad's concentration, and he would send her away too. Soon, her father began using Dinner as the main model in his painting. Fanny understood then, that her father would never send anything away that she loves.
I found this book touching in some ways. This book is very straightforward and easy to understand. It isn't a very exciting book, but it has good writings and is a worthy book to read. Though, I think the title doesn't exactly match the meaning of the story. For instance, "Her mouth was a pouty circle, and short, slitty lines served as eyes and eyelashes."
The sentences are short and simple to read. This book isn't very descriptive nor complex. The sentences are also short, but it makes perfect sense. "The petals were so dark they looked black at the innermost whorl." It is in a very good writing, especially in a drama type of book.
I enjoyed reading this book. It wasn't the story that interested me, but the moral of this story. Even though the story doesn't completely mean the same meaning as the title, there was a important lesson about this doll (Marie) Fanny owned. The moral of this story is not to show emotional outrage to anyone in your family. Fanny never trusted her father, and she hid her belongings away from him. I recommend this book to everyone.
