Comet's Nine Lives book cover
Comet's Nine Lives

Written and illustrated by Jan Brett
New York: G.P. Putnams, 2003
4+ years

Adversity can present dangers--perservere but stay smart and aware.

Jan Brett's unique and playful illustrations are once more a sight to behold and savor. "Beautiful island scenes--sandy beaches, hillside flower gardens, seaside trails, villages, and the sea itself are set within exquisite shell borders." A colorful variety of canine residents inhabit her Nantucket setting. Jan also likes to invest her books with multiple stories, this one involving a shaggy sheepdog captain looking for a friend to live with him and his lighthouse cat.
