God Got a Dog / Cynthis Rylant / 34 pages

What a find!  If you need another Christmas gift...for anyone...or any kind of gift, this would be an excellent choice.  God visits the world he/she created in the guise of various humans...eats 37 snickers bars in one day.  That's probably too many even for god!  What a wonderful, warm-hearted, personal depiction of God, a reminder that we meet him/her daily in others.  Marla Frazee's watercolor illustrations add depth and nuances to Ms. Rylant's creative, thought-provoking verse.   I was a bit put off by God being pissed... but I got over it.
