9780152578091: The Old Woman Who Named Things

How does an old woman who has outlived all her friends keep from being lonely? By naming the things in her life she knows she will never outlive--like her house, Franklin, and her bed, Roxanne. When a shy brown puppy appears at her front gate, the old woman won t name it, because it might not outlive her. Tender watercolours capture the charm of this heart-warming story of an old woman who doesn t know she s lonely until she meets a plucky puppy who needs a name--and someone to love.
