Awhile ago the Blue Rose Girls posted about finding the dog in Chris Van Allsburg's picture books. I did a project on Van Allsburg a long time ago and I thought some of you might like this key. I haven't added his newest book Probuditi, but if you're having trouble finding the dog it appears as a teapot on a shelf. I think if you click on my key you might be able to see a bigger copy, but if you want me to email you a copy just leave me a comment with your email address.
I also had to share this quote that I think explains a lot of Van Allsburg's work.
"Lucky are the children who know there is a jolly fat man in a red suit who pilots a flying sleigh. We should envy them. And we should envy the people who are so certain martians will land in their back yard that they keep a loaded Polaroid camera by the back door. The inclination to believe in the fantastic may strike some as a failure in logic, or gullibility, but it's really a gift. A world that might have Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster in clearly superior to one that definitely does not."
