Product Details


From Booklist:

This photo-filled picture book spotlights real-life Seattle dog Eclipse, who, in 2015, gained attention for riding the bus by herself. Told from Eclipse’s point of view, the story relates how she and her adult owner regularly took the bus to the dog park, but on one occasion, they became separated and she boarded alone. Fortunately, she remembered the right stop and got off, her owner followed, and they reunited. Soon, she began riding independently, eventually getting her own bus pass. Thanks to a local news story, Eclipse gains further friends and fame, and she describes other excursions, like visiting local businesses, and ponders future adventures. The lively text in a large, easy-to-read font pairs well with the many color photos depicting Eclipse on the bus and in the park, which highlight her friendly, social nature. Young, Eclipse’s owner, offers some further info about his four-legged friend, including the fact that she’s a service dog, in an appended note. Eclipse’s story is perfect for the picture book set, and doggie lovers will get right on board.
