A boy and his grandfather are spending the day together and head out to gather materials for a project. While shopping, they notice a sign where a family reports that their dog has gone missing. The two of them decide to go out and help look for it, but find themselves in a pickle when a blizzard hits. They wind up trapped and having to find shelter, growing a bit lost themselves. In a surprising twist, they are rescued by the very dog they're searching for, except he has some friends of his own.

LOST is a multigenerational story about adventure, kindness, and dogs. The watercolor style pictures are stunning and I love how the grandfather and grandson work well together with both their project and dog-searching. A part of me wishes the story focused more on the dog rescue and left out the part of the projects because it's a bit distracting from the main plot.


Final Verdict: Overall, this is a great winter read and a heartfelt story for grandparents to share with their grandchildren. It's perfect for fans of dogs and adventure.
