When Jack Goes Out

When Jack Goes Out
by Pat Schories
Honesdale, Pa. : Boyds Mills Press, c2010

Jack's nightly ritual of being tied out in the yard by his doghouse is anything but normal tonight. After his little boy returns to the cozy little house, Jack gets some surprise visitors. At first, hesitant, Jack quickly joins in as they embark on some wonderful adventures through the backyard. Eventually, the little visitors depart leaving a little dog free of his restraints and his boy quite bewildered. This wonderful wordless picture book sparks the imagination of little ones who excitedly will tell the story in their own words. The adorable illustrations have a slightly retro look to them which adds a magical element to the story.
