Letters to Leo

By Amy Hest
Illustrated by Julia Denos

“Upbeat and chirpy, and decorated with lots of kid-style illustrations, Leo evokes sympathy with a light touch.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

The joys and trials of fourth grade —and of life with her father now that her mother is gone — play out in charming letters from Annie to her dog, Leo. Genuine and funny, Amy Hest’s first-person narration revisits a winning young character as she takes on a new year — and a new dog — with humor, honesty, and resilience.

  • Now in paperback, illustrated fiction from beloved author Amy Hest.
  • Fun and very kid-friendly design with adorable drawings and doodles, as if drawn by Annie herself, from Julia Denos.
  • Pitch-perfect voice that is by turns funny, endearing, and always very real.
