Lucy

By Randy Cecil
Illustrated by Randy Cecil

A tiny dog, a kindhearted girl, and a nervous juggler converge in a cinematic book in four acts — a unique children’s literature experience.

Lucy is a small dog without a home. She had one once, but she remembers it only in her dreams. Eleanor is a little girl who looks forward to feeding the stray dog that appears faithfully beneath her window each day. Eleanor’s father is a juggler with stage fright. The overlapping stories of three delightful characters, offering a slightly different perspective each time, come together in a truly original, beautifully illustrated book for dog (and underdog) lovers of all ages.

  • Acclaimed author/illustrator Randy Cecil brings his talents to a new format - a 144-page picture book told in four acts.
  • Readers and especially dog-lovers will cheer for lost dog Lucy's triumph.
  • Cinematic in feel and big of heart, Lucy is the culmination of years of work for Cecil, who was inspired by his own dog in the telling of this poignant tale.
